Dogs, Human Ingenuity and Delight in God

Maggie GraceOur Golden Retriever Maggie got a kick out of this video, and so did we. Makes you smile, and I believe it makes God smile. It’s a little tribute to human ingenuity, as God’s image-bearers, and to canine adorability, both reflecting the creativity and beauty of God. Since the creation of the world His [God’s] invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made…” (Romans 1:20).

Even in this fallen world, we can see the beauty, humor and delight of God. (Human beings did not invent beauty, humor and delight, and Satan certainly didn’t!) Take the time to look around you today at beauty and creativity in this world. Then, move backward from the secondary to the Primary—God, the One behind all things that are good, and deserves the credit for them. Thank him and you’ll both be glad. “Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…” (Ephesians 5:20).

But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. (Psalm 68:3, NIV)
