9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:9-10
As I mentioned yesterday, we look up to the heavens regularly, but we walk on the ground every day. He separated the dry land from the oceans. People spend entire vacations going to ocean side resorts. The sea and everything in it is fascinating to watch. People also trek all over this great land to explore the variety of tracts of land. The United States alone is a vast expanse of land and water, mountains and forests, lakes and rivers. And it was all created on the third day, minus some erosion that has occurred over the years.
We pick up a rose, smell it, and praise God for creating it. Similarly, we ride for miles and see mountains, plains, and great bodies of water. We may even stop along the road to admire it all. What do we do then? We thank God for creating it.
It’s the simple way we should live, well, more often than we do.
