God’s Word for Today: Green
Genesis 9:3. Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
I really like the color green. I don’t know why it isn’t my favorite. Maybe because I don’t look that good in green? My high school colors were green and white which later evolved into green and yellow. But, green was always the predominant color. That was cool.
The main reason I like green so much is because it represents life. One of my favorite personalities of Paraguay was the fact that it is always green. Year round, you could see green everywhere. Life was always present. One would never starve to death in a place that is always green. Green is good.
Others see green as what lines their billfold. I used to chase after that green too. Now I realize the green of living plants and trees and grass and life, are much more important and rewarding than green paper. It took me a long stretch of time to get to that point. A good bible verse connected to that thought is Proverbs 11:28. Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
Today, know that God wants you to be surrounded by green. It is up to you to figure out which green is most beneficial. I know you will discover the riches never ending, in God’s definition of green………..
Prayer: Dear Lord, creator of all living things, I thank you for everything green. Forgive me for the times I don’t acknowledge the green you have laid at my feet. I will work on this. In Jesus’, God’s green light to heaven, name I pray. Amen and amen.
