God’s Nature

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof…” (Psalm 24:1)

When our grown daughter was a child and someone threw trash on the ground, she would say, “They shouldn’t do that to God’s nature!” Nature is certainly the creation of the Lord, but one could speculate as to whether it is also reflective of His own personal nature. For example, have you ever been out in the “middle of nowhere” and discovered beautiful flowers, or a colorful bird which no one but yourself would likely ever encounter? If you are like me, you would ask in your mind why God would put such beauty where it might never be appreciated. I believe it is because it is in God’s very nature to create good: life, beauty, usefulness, harmony, growth and so much more; furthermore, it is His delight to do it. And so, it stands to reason since God has immeasurable power, creativity, and ability that inevitably, the beauty of nature must abound to overflowing and fill the entire earth.
