"Ask the beasts and they will teach you,
and the birds of the
air and they will tell you;
ask the plants of the
earth and they will teach you,
and the fish of the
sea will declare to you:
Who among these does
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing,
and the breath of
every human being."
Job 12: 7-10
"If you interrogate the flora and
fauna of land, air and sea, the text suggests,
their response with lead your mind and heart to the Living God,
generous source and sustaining power of their life.
In their beauty, their variety,
their interacting, their coming to be and passing away,
they witness to the overflowing goodness of their Creator.
They even teach something about
human beings, that these
members of the community of life
receive their every breath as a gift from the
same immensely immeasurable Giver
