Pray the Bible from Psalm 125:15-16. (Have one person read one line, then read the next line together.)
Reading: The eyes of all look to you.
Response: And you give them their food at the proper time.
Reading: You open your hand.
Response: And satisfy the desires of every living thing.
Did you know that cows are good for more than milk and steaks? What else comes from cows? (Basketballs are made from cowhides. Crayons come from cow fat!)
Follow the milk on your table backward to see where it comes from. Your parents may buy milk at the store, but how does it get there? Where do delivery drivers get it? How does the dairy get out of the cows? What do cows need to produce milk? Who made the grass that cows eat? Who made the sunshine and rain that makes the grass grow? God is responsible for the milk in your glass. The same is true for every other food. God is the ultimate provider!
- What else ultimately comes from God?
- Follow some other things backward. Where did your T-shirt come from? What about your stereo or TV?
- How do things like friendship, happiness, and safety lead back to God?
