Great Gravity

Who discovered gravity? 

Gravity is a force that pulls two objects together and It’s what keeps your feet pulled down on the ground. Thinking about gravity may be at the forefront of your daily routine until you imagine life without it. It’s Earth’s gravity that keeps you from floating off into space, and Isaac Newton realized it when the apple fell off the tree.

Gravity affects how much you weigh and weight is a measurement of how much gravity pulls on an object. Research reveals that you might weigh a bit less at the equator than at the North Pole because gravity has a slightly stronger pool at the North Pole.

The gravitational pull from the moon causes high and low tides in the oceans, keeping the water from becoming dead or stagnant and running over the continents. Gravity on other planets is extremely different. Mars has much less gravity, so  if you weighed 100 pounds on Earth, you’d weigh about 38 pounds on Mars. And Jupiter has a much stronger gravitational pull, so every 100 pounds would weigh about 236 pounds there. God keeps us physically grounded with gravity, and He keeps our hearts and minds grounded with His Word.
