I overheard a person ask,
ďWhy would God care if we honor and praise Him,
If He is the highest spiritual being over all things?Ē
Since You are with me everywhere I go, Father,
I know you overheard the conversation taking place before me.
I stayed silent, listening to the response being given,
which I was very glad to hear the response from other believers.
Thinking back on that, Iíve come up with my response,
and I donít think itís too late to give it.
It was Your love, Father, that brought us into being,
Out of Your love, we were created.
The universe and all existence was created from Your Love.
You wanted something good and so it was.
I look around and see all the living things around me.
The birds of the air, the fish in the sea,
and the animals that roam the earth.
You could have given them authority over us, but You didnít.
You gave them all to us, giving us authority over them.
You crowned man with glory and honor as
You made us in Your image.
For this, Father, I am so grateful.
