“God created the great sea monsters and all kinds of crawling living creatures with which the water teems, and all kinds of winged birds. God saw that it was good...Evening came, and morning followed—the fifth day.” Gen. 1:21,23
Reflection: The Lord is the God of variety! He fills the earth with every kind of animal He can think of, till the earth literally “teems” with life. We start to see hints of His joy and love for what He has made. Prayer: God our Father, may we relearn how to smile when we see the animals as You see them. Help us to respect all life. Amen.
