USES OF THE BONES
The bones are to the body what the frame is to the house. They hold up and retain the other parts in their proper places. They furnish points of attachment for the muscles, to hold the body together and to give it motion. They also furnish strong, bony cavities for the lodgment and protection of such delicate organs as the eye, the brain, and the heart.
A single bone, examined by itself, might not seem to have much beauty
or design about it; it might even look clumsy and misshapen. But when
all the bones are inspected with reference to each other, we immediately
discover a general plan upon which they are made, and are compelled to
admire their beautiful harmony, and the symmetrical grace with which
they act. They show us that God can command our wonder, even in the bony
frame of our bodies.
