GOD’S WORD FOR AUGUST 10
GOD’S WORD FOR AUGUST 11 ~ ~ 1 Chronicles 16:9~ ~ “Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.”
Creation not only groans for the resurrection of mankind, (Romans 8:23) it praises the Lord even now. When a bird sings, when a dog barks, when any animal does what he does, He does it to his Creator. God told us to do the same.
Col. 3:23 –”And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”
There are more than 100 species of Hawaiian Drosophila, or fruit fly. Just like everything else in that tropical paradise, these fruit flies are not the drab creatures known in mainland biology labs. Hawaiian fruit flies are larger and more brightly colored. And while mainland fruit flies do sing, Hawaiian fruit flies offer more variety in their songs and in the way they make the sounds. One of their unique songs is called the click song. Its high pitched clicks sound something like a fingernail being dragged across a comb. Another song is made up of a complex pattern that includes pulses and trills. A third song pattern is a steady purr. A fourth pattern is made up of a low hum. Scientists describe the singing patterns as elaborate for a fly.
Scripture tells us that everything in the creation sings praise to our Creator. Often that truth is taken as figurative. However, as we learn more about His creatures, we see that the complexity of music is a gift that has been given to many things in the creation.
