Harding University’s central park has almost a hundred huge oak, elm, poplar and hickory trees. A nature preserve of beautiful monuments to God’s natural creation.
But when I look closer — hidden among the gnarled roots — electric sockets for students to power their computers while sitting under the trees.
What an image of our lives: His creation, tended by the ones created in His own image — us.
God, in Jesus, has empowered me (and you) to participate in His awesome work. His awesome life. His awesome dream.
Me with God. You with God. Us together. What an awesome thought!
