Pondering God's creation this morning. A confession: I do not enjoy God's world as much as I should. I do not just take walks to breathe in the air of nature. I do not consider the birds, the stars, or the trees as I ought. Most of the time I am too busy in my office where the sights are all man-made.
Charles Spurgeon talked about nature being important and said, "A mouthful of sea air, or a stiff walk in the wind's face would not give grace to the soul, but it would yield oxygen to the body, which is next best."
Piper has an entire chapter in When I Don't Desire God called, "How to Wield the World in the Fight for Joy."
Help me out:
How do you enjoy creation? What practices help you to wield the world in your fight for joy?
