Psalm 24 and Earth Day

I was going to save this until tomorrow. This morning Gabriel asked what day it was because he is "supposed" to wear green to celebrate Earth Day tomorrow....

While I don't have anything against celebrating the amazingness of the Earth, it's not it's "mother-ness", but that it is the miraculous creation of the Lord of Heaven, that I am celebrating.

Gabriel will be reading this passage out loud for his sisters tomorrow. I hope you will join me in recognizing WHY the Earth is so spectatular.

"Psalm 24

Of David. A psalm.

1 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,

the world, and all who live in it;

2 for he founded it on the seas

and established it on the waters.

3 Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?

Who may stand in his holy place?

4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,

who does not trust in an idol

or swear by a false god.[a]

5 They will receive blessing from the LORD

and vindication from God their Savior.

6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,

who seek your face, God of Jacob.[b][c]

7 Lift up your heads, you gates;

be lifted up, you ancient doors,

that the King of glory may come in.

8 Who is this King of glory?

The LORD strong and mighty,

the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, you gates;

lift them up, you ancient doors,

that the King of glory may come in.

10 Who is he, this King of glory?

The LORD Almighty—

he is the King of glory."
