Animal Blessing

dailyword-cat.jpgGod's creatures, large and small, enrich our lives and our world.
God has blessed people the world over with a diversity of animals. Whether they are in the wild, on farms, or in our homes, we accept and cherish animals as God intended them to be: our helpers. Modern equipment has replaced the work previously done by some animals; however, their beauty, resourcefulness, and companionship continue to enhance our lives.

Whether we work with, care for, or are observers of animals and their activities, we give thanks that God created such remarkable creatures. As our companions or therapy pets, as creatures that help maintain a vital balance in nature, animals enrich our lives and our world.

"Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.' So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them."--Genesis 2:18-19
