Scripture Reading: GENESIS 1:3-4

One of the refrains of Genesis 1 is: “And God saw that is was good.” The light, the water, the land, the vegetations, all of creation — God saw it all and declared it good. Imagine if we surveyed all that we encountered and noticed — and saw that it was good. Today as you see the world you inhabit, make a point to notice its goodness and name it so.

Creator God, you make the world and call it good. As we wake and work, rest and play, open our eyes to the holy goodness all around and even within us. Do not let us take for granted the goodness of the meals we eat, the goodness of the people we encounter, the goodness of the air we breathe and the landscapes we move through every day. May we, like you, see and declare: It is good. Amen.
