Celebration of Creation

Read Psalms 104:1-9, 24, 35c.

This psalm is a celebration of God’s creativity and wisdom in ordering a universe in which all things are connected in some way. Just as it is with the human body, when one part of creation is not healthy, it can throw off the whole balance.

Think about the ways your actions bless God’s creation and work towards restoring balance. Which of your actions might be doing harm to the order God has written into creation? Today, take some time to be in the outdoors. If it is during the daytime, notice the colors of the sky and the leaves, listen for birdsong, feel the breeze on your skin. If it as at night, marvel at the number of stars against the darkness of the sky. Offer a prayer of praise for the beauty and the wisdom of God displayed in what you notice.
