“And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground–trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.” Genesis 2:9a (NIV1984)
Reading this verse, I realized God could have created a food source
that was a little gray box that popped out fruit as needed. Instead He
made a lush variety of shapes, colors, and types of trees–trees that
stir as the wind tickles them, trees that change color. In short, He
designed trees that are not only utilitarian, but beautiful.
Lord, thank You for creating beauty. Help us go beyond
utilitarian uses of art and enjoy the beauty You’ve invited us to
