SUPPOSE THE WORLD WERE DIFFERENT
What do you suppose the world would be like if there were no colors or light or water or resources of any kind? Let’s take a journey using our imaginations to picture a different sort of world.
Suppose the World were Different
Suppose the world were dull and gray
No colors for variety
No daffodils or purple sage
Or rainbows there to grace the sky
Suppose the rain were not to fall
No water to replenish lakes
No nourishment for thirsty lands
Or respite from the sun’s great heat
Suppose the sun refused to shine
No light to brighten up the day
No benefits to bolster health
Or warming rays to beat the chill
Suppose the world were on its own
No people could survive for long
No resources to stabilize
Or loving God to give it life
I’m glad our world is not left on its own. In the Bible we read a totally different story than the one imagined in the poem.
Genesis 1:26-27 (CSB)
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness.
They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, the whole earth,
and the creatures that crawl on the earth.
So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female.
We do have a loving God who created everything and sustains it by His power.
Colossians 1:16-17 (CSB)
For everything was created by him,
in heaven and on earth,
the visible and the invisible,
whether thrones or dominions
or rulers or authorities—
all things have been created through him and for him.
He is before all things, and by him all things hold together.
