VERSE OF THE DAY

GENESIS 8:17 (NRSV)

[17] Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh -- birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth -- so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.

What is your good fruit? How are you blessing others? Are you artistic? Are you generous? Are you practical? Are you kind? Are you compassionate? Are you loving?

Even if you think you are none of these things, you have something that makes you uniquely special, and that uniqueness makes someone else on this earth happy. So do more of that. Be more of that. Be fruitful and multiply. 

[Did I mention this is a theme in the Bible? Catch this same line repeated over and over again in Genesis 9.]
