Physical Inspiration: Corals
Corals live in tropical waters throughout the world, generally close to the surface where the sun's rays can reach the algae. While corals get most of their nutrients from the byproducts of the algae's photosynthesis, they also have barbed, venomous tentacles they can stick out, usually at night, to grab zooplankton and even small fish.
Coral reefs teem with life, covering less than one percent of the ocean floor, but supporting about 25 percent of all marine creatures. However, threats to their existence abound, they provide a home for fish, mollusks, worm, crustaceans, sponges, tunicates and much more.
Spiritual Inspiration: Breath of All Mankind
“But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this, In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind? (Job 12:5, 7-10)
If you are skeptical that Jesus is God and the one who created this earth or that He is the life of every living thing including us...Ask and He will show you through His creation that He is the only true and living God.
