“Study God in the creatures as well as in the Scriptures. The primary use of the creatures, is to acknowledge God in them. They were made to be witnesses of Himself in His goodness, and heralds of His glory.” – Stephen Charnock
“The creation of the world seems to have been especially for this end: that the eternal Son of God might obtain a spouse, towards whom He might fully exercise the infinite benevolence of His nature and to whom He might, as it were, open and pour forth all that immense fountain of love and grace that was in His heart, and that in this way God might be glorified.” – Jonathan Edwards
I know that some of you spend a lot of time working in your yards to grow lush green grass and destroy weeds and pests. While this will make your neighbors happy and could even be considered good stewardship of creation, even the weeds and the bugs in your yard declare the glory of their (and your) Creator.
All creation sings the glory of God.
