Bible Reading: Psalms 65-67; 69-70


You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
to provide the people with grain,
for so you have ordained it. (Psalm 65:9)


There are many promises that God makes to His people, but He also cares for the land. The images in this simple verse are rich. The beauty of creation is us to enjoy and also to sustain life.


God cares for the planet. We should, too. Followers of Jesus should be the most “green,” being good stewards of the land and water.


Jesus, thank You for creating such an amazing planet. You not only spoke it into existence, You set in motion streams and sun and other weather elements to keep it ever-vibrant and fresh. Forgive us for polluting and destroying Your creation. May we never worship the earth, but rather You, O LORD, Creator of all. You are an incredible artist! In Your Name, Jesus, amen.
