Tehillim Sixty-Seven: Nature

“The earth gave forth its produce; God, our God, will bless us (Psalms 67:7).” Today, many people, including me, live our lives considerably disconnected from the earth. I control the temperature in my apartment so that I can stay comfortable regardless of what the weather is like outside. I’m able to eat any food I want all year round, without relying on what’s in season at any given time. So it’s hard to fully grasp the wonder and amazement of treating the earth as God’s blessing to us. In nature, produce is a miracle of science and faith, and we’d all do better if we recognized it and expressed more gratitude for the wonders around us.
