Cheesy Potato Casserole

January 13 – The Heart of God & Cheesy Potato Casserole

Genesis 2:19 (nirv)

The Lord God had formed all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He had made all of them out of the ground. He brought them to the man to see what names he would give them. And the name the man gave each living creature became it’s name.

Read

The Bible has a lot of beautiful moments, but this is personally one of my favorites. I like to imagine how much fun God and Adam had together; looking at each animal, taking note of each one’s special characteristics, and discussing appropriate names. I am imagine them laughing together when Adam yells out the word “squirrel” or “hippopotamus” for the first time. When I look at this moment, my heart for God grows.

Imagine that you created something you were incredibly proud of; maybe you wrote a book or started a company. After you made sure it was perfect, you graciously handed it over to someone and gave them complete freedom to name it and take care of it. Sounds pretty generous, doesn’t it? That’s God’s heart for us. He’s been sharing His gifts with us from the very beginning, and trusting us with His precious work. And even when we sinned and made mistakes, He didn’t take those gifts away. He continues to share with us, because that’s simply who He is.

This says a lot about God’s vulnerability; something you might not think too much about. In fact, being vulnerable might not even be a character trait you associate with God. It’s kind of odd to think about the Creator of the world being vulnerable, isn’t it? But anytime we share a piece of ourselves with someone who has the opportunity to hurt us or the option to reject us, that’s vulnerability. And God is vulnerable all the time. He chooses to love when He knows there are some that will never love in return. He chooses to give when He knows there are some that will never recognize. And He chooses to sit down in a patch of grass with us while we name His creations, knowing that the next chapter is the first rejection – ever.

To me, this is one of the greatest depictions of God’s heart. And it’s so beautiful, if I do say so myself.

Write

What are some of the ways that God has shown his generosity and vulnerability in your life? Does this scripture change the way you see the heart and character of God? Why, or why not?

Pray

For eyes that see the true heart and character of God.
