All Creatures Great & Small
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Lord, thank you for all creatures great and small that add such dazzling wonder to this world. Each one bears a unique stroke showcasing your creativity and delight in your creation. Thank you for the domestic animals that live side by side with us, giving us companionship and laughter in our daily lives. Thank you too for the exotic species that remind us of how powerful and wild you are. Help us prove good stewards of this earth that we would protect and care for all the beings you have made. Amen.
A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, but even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds.
