God Puts on Really Great Shows

[ WordBytes of Franciscan Moments ]

Saint Francis of Assisi: Franciscan MomentsWhy do we waste so much time in front of the television set when we can be more thoroughly and delightfully entertained sitting in our back yards watching the shows that God produces? And they’re all commercial-free! The dew drops on the screen covering of my lanai are, in my opinion, far more interesting than sitcoms and talk shows and violent “action” movies. When the sun hits these tiny globes of water, they sparkle like shiny diamonds, and when God touches them with a gentle morning breeze, they twinkle like glittering stars. It’s fun to watch!

It’s also awe-inspiring. Just think, God placed those dew drops on my lanai screen for me to enjoy! He created them with me in mind! It’s sad that I miss a lot of the shows He’s produced. What a waste. So many dew drops never get appreciated.

Ahhh, but that’s not true. God sees every dew drop in the entire world, and He thoroughly enjoys watching them twinkle in the sunlight. He started entertaining Himself with dew drops long before He created people to share the spectacular view with. Right now, wherever there are dew drops, He’s grinning from the pleasure they are giving Him.

dew drops on lanai screen are an example of God's showsIf He gets this delighted over simple dew drops, imagine how wonderfully happy He feels about you. You are far more important to Him than mere bits of water. Nothing that’s good about you escapes His notice. He smiles over every nice gesture, every kind deed, every helpful outreach, every use of your gifts and talents. He gets more excited by you and what you do than He does any drop of water — or television show!
