Psalm 145:1-8

“On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.” vs. 5

Some people have an amazing ability to capture the beauty and the majesty of creation with their cameras. They have an eye for lighting and perspective and their photographs, whether of plants, animals, or landscapes, are breathtaking. And it’s more than having skill with a camera or knowing the proper speeds and settings. The artists who produce such pictures will have a deep love for nature and an appreciation for the wondrous works of God. Their photographs are awesome and invite reflection and meditation, and certainly deserve more than a glance. The psalmist would have said that they are a tribute to the glorious splendor of God’s majesty. Of course we really don’t need photographs to experience the wonder of creation. All we really have to do is take a walk outside, perhaps a meander through the neighborhood at sunset or sunrise, and allow our senses to soak in the beauty. We don’t have to go to Yellowstone or travel the fjords of Norway…God’s wonders are everywhere…all the time. But it takes intentionality to see them! And we definitely have to slow down and adopt a meditative mood. And in those reflective moments our eyes will be opened…and the glory of the Lord will shine round us!

Thought for the Day: The most beautiful place in my neighborhood.
