Wednesday 1/31 ~ God didn’t create everything?

The scripture for today, January 31(1/31), is Genesis 1:31 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

0-Michel-COVER-Kindle-Thumbnail“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning ~ the sixth day.”

Oh, how God loves to spoil us! He didn’t create a barren earth and then order us to get to work and plant something. He got everything just right. And then….  And then….  And then his crowning glory ~ he created us! Special us!

We looked around with wonder and began exploring our world as an infant would.  But then what? What was there to do?

To our delight, we discovered God hadn’t created everything after all.  Why? Because he made us to be like him ~ creative.  

He left the jewels unmined, the buildings unbuilt, the clay unmolded, the songs unwritten, the paintings unpainted, the ships unmade, the poems unpenned, the sculptures uncarved….

Today, create something!

Scripture for Thursday, October 26 (10/26)

The scripture for today, October 26 (10/26), is 1st Corinthians 10:26 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

00-COVER-KINDLE“For ‘The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.’ “

The beautiful part is that God left a lot of his creation undone for us to finish. After all, we are created in his likeness.

He left the stones and clay in the ground so that we could dig it up and build cities. He left the wool on the sheep so we could shear it and make warm garments. He left the trees growing tall so we could hew them and build barns and houses. He left the gravel in the ground so we could harvest it and build roads.

He left the ore in the ground so we could mine it and make skyscrapers, airplanes, ships, trains, automobiles. He left the water in the lakes and seas so we could capture it and create power and transportation ways. He left the beautiful stones unseen so we could dig them up, shape them, polish them, and make beautiful decorations.

Yes, we were created in the likeness of our Creator. He loved to create. So, do we. So, whenever we make something good from his creation, we honor him.

Oh how God loves to spoil us! He didn’t create a barren earth and then order us to get to work and plant something. He got everything just right. And then…. And then…. And then his crowning glory ~ he created us! Special us!

However, as perfect as he made earth, he left some joyful things for us to create ourselves, for he made us like him ~ creative. He left the jewels unmined, the buildings unbuilt, the songs unwritten, the paintings unpainted, the ships unmade, the sculptures uncarved….
Here we are surrounded by everything we need to imitate one part of God ~ his creative side. Today, create something!
