Creative Generosity

You’re the one,
   God, you alone;
You made the heavens,
   the heavens of heavens, and all angels;
The earth and everything on it,
   the seas and everything in them;
You keep them all alive;
   heaven’s angels worship you!
~ Nehemiah 9:6 (MSG)

But he showed that he was there by the good things he did. God sends rain from heaven and makes your crops grow. He gives food to you and makes your hearts glad. ~ Acts 14:17 (CEV)

Creation is evidence of God's creative generosity.
God, you're THE ONE -- you alone. Thank you for all that you do for us. Thank you for the world in which we get to live. We confess a certain indifference to that very creation. We've become exploitive rather than creative. Renew your creativity in me so that as I begin to wonder again at the creation I might honor you the creator. Amen.
