The Beauty of Creation
When you see a beautiful painting, you compliment the artist. So, when you experience the beauty in nature, praise the Creator.
Our world is filled with beauty, but usually we are too busy to notice. An early morning routine forces us to miss the sunrise, and we’re engulfed with activities into the evening so we don’t enjoy the sunset. Maybe your daily commute takes you past majestic scenery–but you never notice because you’re too upset by the driver that cut in front of you.
Imagine that you attended an art exhibition featuring incredible paintings by a local artist. If you blasted through the gallery without looking at the paintings, you would insult the artist, and you would be depriving yourself of the beauty on display.
And so it is with the world around you. God is the Master Artist who creatively designed the beauty in nature. Don’t rush through His gallery. Stop long enough to enjoy the splendor of the earth. And while you’re at it, compliment Him on His artistry.
The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Psalm 19:1
