The Hand That Feeds
Last year the federal government listed the Gunnison Sage Grouse as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act. I have to pause at man’s desire to put himself in the place of God and presume that we have the power to manipulate creation and be the savior of the planet — whether it be a species, the environment, or the weather. Jesus reminded us that God is still the Caregiver of creation. “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them” (Matt 6:26a NIV).
