|Two photos from Croatia|
Whenever we visit, I take hundreds of photos trying to capture these images so pleasing to my eyes.
While reading Genesis 2, I noticed something I'd never pondered before: God created "trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food" (verse 9).
The God of the universe is not only practical, but He wants us to enjoy the sources of His provision, making them "pleasing to the eye," sweet to the taste, fragrant to the smell, interesting to the touch, melodic to the ear.
That sounds like a simple truth, but it's not.
We could have a very different world if it were merely practical.
But we have an awe-inspiring, beauty-creating, multi-purposing God.
