The Birds & The Bees
The birds and the bees are very active this time of year. So are the rabbits and squirrles, even the flowers in the fields.
What are they doing?!
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands." - Psalm 19:1
They're declaring the glory of God! They're proclaiming the power of our Creator. (Now, what were you thinking?) When flowers bloom and birds sing, as God created them to do, God is glorified. When eagles soar and hummingbirds hum, as God created them to do, God is glorified.
Likewise, when we serve strangers and care for our neighbors in need, God is glorified. When we share our resources and live generously, God is glorified. When we utlize our God-given gifts (at work, home, and school,) and embrace our God-given potential, God is glorified. So, let's live fully and fearlessly and faithfully - just like the birds and the bees. Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the gift of this new day. Help us to live faithfully and fully. We love you and are grateful for your ongoing work in our lives. May our everyday words and actions declare your glory. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
