Luke 19:35b, 37, 39-40 After throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen. Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”
On this side of eternity, we will never fully know the relationship God has with non-human creation. Knowing this, our best response to God’s astounding creativity in the physical world is care and humility.
MOVING FORWARD: Consider volunteering at a community garden or shelter.
