On a cold December night theologian Martin Luther was walking through the forest and spotted the twinkling of stars through the branches of the giant fir trees. Overwhelmed by the amazing beauty of God’s creation, he cut down a small fir tree and took it home. Martin Luther gathered up all of the candles in his home, lit them, and carefully placed them on the branches.
Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
As Martin Luther’s children watched the flickering flames of the candles they were able to experience the beauty of God’s creation in their own home.
Spend some time looking at the stars in the sky and think about all of God’s amazing creations.
