It Is Good!

Isnít it wonderful watching a young child explore Godís amazing creation. Children are just captivated by even the simplest, most mundane things.

Take grass, for example. We adults take grass for granted. Itís a ground covering. Something that needs to be mowed every week. Something we spend our hard-earned money on to ensure itís green and wee-free (although Iím happy if itís just green). But to my one-year-old grass is simply captivating. If I get down on her level the grass is an expansive ocean of green blades jutting out of the grounds. And while at a quick glance a lawn looks like . . . well, a lawn, at a closer look (say, that of a one-year-old) each blade of grass is unique to itselfóa thing to be studied and touched and yes, even tasted.

Or how about a moth. A nuisance right? To us, but not to a four-year-old. To my oldest daughter a moth is a beautiful creature. Itís antennae, itís furry body and powdery wings all demand a closer look, a gentle touch, and a wide-eyed grin when the little creature takes flight.

Or even something as simple as a rock. My two-year-old will study a simple rock as if it fell from the moon. A rock! Who could take such pleasure in a simple rock? The answer? God.

We have become so accustomed to Godís creation all around us that we take it for granted. We must remember, Godís handiwork is perfect. All that He made He made perfect. When God was finished creating, He sat back and said that all He had made was good, no, it was very good. That includes all those trivial little things we overlook like rocks and moths. And the best thing about it is that God made it all for us to enjoy!

So the next time you enjoy the grandeur of a fiery sunset, the booming thunder of a crashing wave, the gracefulness of a deer leaping through an open field, or yes, the fragility of a common moth, or the intricacy of a . . . rock, praise God for the glory and beauty of His handiwork. He did it for you!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
