ALL THE ANIMALS IN THE BIBLE FROM A TO Z
God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.
The beloved hymn, All Things Bright and Beautiful, has a memorable refrain weaving the beauty of Genesis and creation as it states, “all things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.” Through this devotional series, we’ll meet the various animals and creatures of scripture alphabetically. Some with deep theological meaning, like sheep and lions. Others, you may be surprised to meet or even curious, why are they mentioned at all? Join us on the exploration and may the beauty of all that God has made very good be a menagerie of joy for you as well.
Creator God, the holy words of scripture educate us from the very beginning that all that came into being is through your creative and loving work. May we enjoy the beauty, creativity, and humor you’ve infused into the creatures of this earth. In encountering them, we experience gratitude for your everlasting love, Amen.
