Psalm 8

Memory Verse

Romans 1: 20

God’s eternal power and character cannot be seen. But from the beginning of creation, God has shown what these are like by all he has made. That’s why those people don’t have any excuse. (CEV)

One day, Kevin fell off of his bike. He had jumped off a curb and missed the landing. With a big scrape on his knee, he got back on and carefully pedaled home. When he got there, Kevin asked for a band-aid. As his grandmother cleaned the scrape, she told him to watch as God made a band-aid for him. When he woke up the next morning, Kevin saw a scab on his scraped knee. Over the next few weeks, Kevin watched the scab grow, thicken, and then start to scrape off. Underneath the scab was brand new skin! Have you ever gotten a scab? You probably have. Did you wonder how God’s band-aid works?

A scab is a complex part of creation. As today’s verse says, when we wonder about creation—even about something as messy as a scab—God is telling us about himself. What does a scab tell us about God? A scab shows you how God is a powerful creator who loves you. He made a way for your body to heal itself. When we look at creation, at all the things that God has made, God wants us to wonder.

Do you wonder about creation? Do you ask yourself how it all works? There are so many things to wonder about: stars, grass, changing leaves, your hair color, and yes, even scabs. What kinds of things do you wonder about in creation? Practice wondering and asking questions. When you do, God will show you how powerful he is.

Prayer

God, thank you for your creation. Please help me to stand in wonder of your creation. Help me see you in your creation. Amen.
