A Daily Devotion for Friday, July 29
“But ask the animals and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
This passage seems to illustrate how we, as humans make everything more complicated than it need be. We can’t leave well- enough alone. And many times we can’t bring ourselves to accept the simple, first solution. God created everything, including each and every one of us. When we accept this, we must accept our place as invited guest, good steward or visitor. We must be respectful.
Holy God, I know there are times I forget and I become selfish. The earth is yours, and everything in it. I am blessed by being here and knowing you. Help me to remember to make things better when I can, and do as little as possible to damage your world. Amen
