Here are links to our readings for the day:

Not Creating It to Be a Waste

Look at everything God has made. He has not created it to be a waste. The world and all it contains is beautiful and marvelous when we see it as God created it. And God created all of this for us to live in.

This also implies that we are wonderfully and marvelously created. Our body contains the Spirit God gives us. We know that no two people are made the same. But it is difficult for some people to believe that God loves us, each of us, with a love that we cannot imagine or comprehend. It is this mystery of love that creates confusion. So, God places us in this beautiful world that through the beauty we observe, the care that God has for His creation, and His promise of eternal life, we come to trust in God and of His love for us.

The beauty of the snowfall is an excellent reminder. It is so peaceful after a snowfall. Everything looks so white and clean. The trees covered with white make it a winter wonderland. The excitement of children playing in the snow. Certainly, God’s creation is not a waste.

Then reality sets in. We hear the snowplows pushing the snow away leaving dark streets and dirty snow along the roadsides. God did not create that. But for us to live in this world we do create waste. We should always be reminded that we are to be stewards of this wonderful world. Perhaps living in this world, we should think of ways to add to God’s beauty.

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen
