My EC and I returned from a brief road trip yesterday. I was especially attentive to the scenery, because I have been preparing a Sunday School lesson about the Creation. One of the points the lesson material makes is that we should look for, and appreciate, the beauty of God’s creations.
You wanna know what I saw? Some really ugly countryside. Desolate. Here I am preparing to make a case that God has given us this beautiful earth to enjoy because He loves us, and I was looking out the window thinking, “Then I wonder how He must feel towards the people who live here!”
I was being facetious, of course, (kinda) but it did engender an interesting conversation.
