Why are you alive? Deep question, no?
The Earth is The LORD’s, and everything in it, Amen.
We can get into minutia about Creation! The big bang theory etc. Before there was the Sun, was there ‘Time’? If you say that there was, how was it measured? We measure all in the Units we know:
OK, and? These are all Units of the seen or experienced! Before that?
So, do we all agree that there is unseen? Has anyone ever seen air? Yes! You see it move things a Father, leaves, water, a kite…
All of a sudden, we touch on the unseen – Air! But, it is ALL around us! But, we have never seen it! Ok,I will delve into the Medical a smidgen. Ever seen Oxygen? Yet, we all need it! Contests are conducted re: time one can hold their breath! From what? Partaking in the unseen?
All a bunch of ‘poppycock’ really! Well, do not breath then! We will see how long you last. The unseen affects life! 🤔
I need say no more….
All of the Earth belongs to God its Creator, and all of the bounty it contains also belongs to Him. We can enjoy Earthly blessings as believers, knowing they fall from the hand of God to us. While spiritual blessings are of greater value, God gives us Earthly blessings to enjoy as well.
And we pray: May I ever recognize every gift I enjoy as coming from You. Your gifts are too numerous for me to count, and so often I fail to give You thanks. Teach me to be ever thankful for all things You have given me and to praise You for them. Let me Love the Giver more than the gift, Amen.
