I was logged out of Blogger watching their list of recently updated blogs animatedly change. I'm always on the look out for new and interesting reads which I strike upon once in a while. I wasn't waiting too long when this came up: God Is Better Than You.

The writer says on the introduction, "The purpose of this blog is to demonstrate all the ways that God is better than you. It's something we all know deep inside, but it doesn't hurt to be reminded of it once in a while. Every day, a new demonstration of God's superiority to you will be posted here." It's not really as profound as it is amusing which reminded me of an old book that I got from a sale, Stupid Ways, Smart Ways to Think About God by authors Michael Shevack and Jack Bemporad. It contained twenty ways of looking or how we relate to God (ten for the stupid and another ten for the smart ones). It's a pity the blogger looks as if he has decided to abandon the project, though I'm not sure if it has been abandoned permanently or just temporarily. Here are some of the ways he has written how God is better than us:
God is better than you because He created butterflies. Can you make a butterfly? I mean a live one, not one of those origami things although God can make those too.

God is better than you because He doesn't need to buy candy, flowers or stuffed animals today, nor does He have to take anyone out to dinner just because some grand marketing scheme compels us to.

God is better than you because He can tell you exactly what a sea turtle swimming off the coast of Madagascar is thinking.

God is better than you because He's seen you naked and doesn't laugh.

God is big. I'm talking huge here. He is so incredibly enormous that you can't even begin to comprehend how big He really is. And as the old saying goes... the bigger, the better.

God is better than you because He is bigger than the universe. You will never be that big, no matter how much you eat.

God is better than you because He has millions of people worshipping Him. How many are worshipping you?

God is better than you because He knew that the Xbox 360 would suck before it was even designed. That's why He's saving his money for a Playstation 3 instead.

God is better than you because He knows who is going to win Super Bowl XL. And He knows both teams are praying for a win. And He knows one of them is going to be very ticked off after the game. And He doesn't care, because it's just a stupid game."
Then an idea came to mind. Why not add to the list and add things as to why God is better than all of us combined:
God is better than all of us because He knows how the universe works while we still need books like "The Idiot's Guide" and "Dummies' Guide" to figure out how things work.

God is better than all of us because He will not give up on us while we easily give up on others if we don't get our way.

God is better than all of us because He gave just gave us 10 basic laws to make life better and all we're capable of is making a gazillion laws that complicates life more.

God is better than all of us because He's always right while we punctuate our realizations with "D'oh!"

God is better than all of us because He looks after orphans and widows and commands His followers to do the same.

God is better than all of us because He created a fully functioning being capable of logic and emotions while we think we can do better and come up with robots with limited commands.

God is better than all of us because He's got everything planned out while we can't even manage our own schedule.

God is better than all of us because He's always there by your side 24/7 no matter what.

God is better than all of us because He knows us like the back of His hand while we still surprise ourselves.

God is better than all of us because He never lets us out of His sight which is either a source of assurance or fear depending on what we're doing at the moment.

God is better than all of us because He customized our features and body parts that no two persons are alike.
This list is by no means complete and I'll be adding to it in the coming days and months ahead. Do feel free to add your own list in the comment below.
