Finding God’s Goodness In Creation
March 4, 2013
The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof,
the world and those who dwell therein,
for he has founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
I heard about two men who were sitting under an oak tree one day. And as they were looking up at the acorns hanging on the branches, one said to the other, “Why would God take an acorn and put it on a big strong tree, and then take a watermelon and put it on a spindly little vine?”
“If I were God,” the man continued, “ I’d put the acorn on the little vine and the watermelon in the big tree!”
About that time, an acorn fell from the tree and hit the man on the top of the head. “Ouch!” he said. The other man looked up at him, laughed, and said, “Now, aren’t you glad that wasn’t a watermelon?”
Beware of trying to play God because you’ll always mess up! God created the world and everything in it for a specific purpose. And while sin has marred the face of creation, it is still, at its very core, designed with a plan in mind. So praise God for His marvelous creation and give Him the glory for the work of His hand.
GOD MADE THE WORLD WITH A SPECIFIC PLAN AND PURPOSE. PRAISE HIM FOR HIS WONDERFUL WORK OF CREATION!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
