Talking About Turkey And God's Creativity

God could have created so much less variety than He did. This 1-minute devotion ponders some fun facts about Turkey and a wonderful truth about God.

Did you know?
  • Turkey has more protein than beef or chicken.
  • Turkeys are named after the Turks who introduced a turkey-like foul to Europe.
  • Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the U.S. national bird because he thought it had more character than the eagle.
Even more important that these facts about Turkeys, let's ponder this fact about God:

God could easily have created a single food item to supply our nutritional needs. He could have created all food bland and unattractive. But He didn't.

He created thousands of plants, animals, fish, fowl, herbs and spices for our pleasure. He created food with different colors and textures and so many flavors that we can create billions of combinations.

Scripture says God derives pleasure from creation:

“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11

He obviously wants us to derive pleasure from it as well. 

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, let's thank God for creating so many things for our pleasure...not only things to eat, but so much more!
