40 Days of Discipline: Day 19 – Creation (extra credit Discipline)

What was it like focusing on the skies yesterday? Every time I take the time to deeply examine the skies I am left with a sense of awe.  It is amazing that God cares about us as much as he does when we could be considered to be so infinitesimally small in the universe.

We are going to continue to use scripture passages as a basis for meditating on God’s creation. Today our passage of scripture is Job 12:7-10:

“Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

Our focus will be on animals. During the day consider the animals around you.  Even fish in an aquarium or birds outside your window will do. I wish we all had time to visit a zoo, but that’s asking too much. If you are in an urban setting with no animals around use your imagination. What do these animals teach us about their creator?
