Earth Day Should Be Called Creation Day

While attending a conference this week in Colorado, I was wonderfully reminded of God’s creativity and splendor in ways that my normal routine does not capture. Even in the simplest of things, like snow, the character of God is revealed. We have all been hearing so much emphasis about Earth day and Earth week, but what I noticed most during Earth Week was the Creator of this earth. For example, as I understand this phenomena, snow forms from water within the clouds as the water vapor condenses on small particles of dust, pollen, salts, or even bacteria. In effect, snow serves to clear our atmosphere of contaminants. As most people are aware, every snowflake is unique. It is estimated that an ordinary snow storm contains 1,000 billion uniquely individual flakes. Snow also serves as an insulator to protect plants and roots from freezing in the winter. Some scientists have also deduced that snow adds nitrogen to the soil and waters farm land in the spring producing a promise of improved crops. With all this meticulous wonder, it is shocking to think that some people still think that it just “happened” that way. Isaiah declares: “As the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11)
