Why the fingers of God and Adam do not touch in Michelangelo's famous work of art

In the painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, God's finger is extended to its maximum, but Adam's finger is with the last shortened phalanx. The point of the painting is to explain that God is always there, but the decision is left to man. If a person wants to touch God, he will need to extend his finger, but he can also spend a lifetime with his finger bent without trying to find Him
