things i heard during worship today

Romans 8:19

The creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

in song

And all creation's straining on tiptoe just to see,
the children of God come into their own.

and again in song

Take good care of the land and water, take good care of the creatures too
Take good care of one another, I'll be taking good care of you.

there are all sorts of thoughts that i've had on this topic all week, in particular as an addendum to my "i want to be a better man" post from earlier this week. i'll undoubtedly want to add another post related to a question i was asked this week, "what do the words 'i love you' mean to you Ian?" my answer delves pretty deep into some real stuff for me.

blessings to you on this Lord's Day. take good care of one another and take good care of this wondrous creation. that's what i heard and i still hear it ringing in my ears now, hours after it was spoken to my heart.

I love this thought. I was watching a TV show yesterday (in between some football!) about the westward expansion of the US, and the idea of taking care of the land was explored. Most of the settlers didn't do that, and they paid the price for it later on.
