A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, January 23

Genesis 9:3


Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

But God's creation of man does seem to be the centerpiece. All of the rest of God's creation is ours to enjoy and take care of. God provides all we need to survive in this world. It is up to us to protect it and take care to respect that incredible gift.


Holy Lord, May I never take your creation for granted. You have given me absolutely everything and I have done little to deserve it. Lord I am thankful. Amen

Prayer - Giving God, forgive us for our failure to be excellent stewards of Your gift of creation. We seek to…
