Why do we need Rattlesnakes??

You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. Gen 6:19-20

Ok, I can easily see the purpose for

Anteaters – do they eat fire ants?
     Beavers – anyone need a dam?
          Horses – I’ve been told their wonderful to ride but I’m a scaredy cat!
               Cuddly Panda Bears -- somebody has to keep bamboo plants in check
                    Even ugly vultures -- a gross job, but someone has to do it!



What was God thinking?? 

What about you and me? Do you ever wonder about YOUR purpose?

God created you with a purpose in mind - you are not here to take up space or to warm a bench.

For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Philippians 2:13
God created you. He tenderly wove you together in your mother's womb. He knew your purpose on this crazy planet before you were even born!
Do you have any idea whose day you have brightened with your smile?
Do you know who you have encouraged with a hug?
Someone is blessed because their path crossed yours!    

Who have you encouraged this week?
Who has encouraged you?



  1. Loved this post! Though I may not know (and accept!) why God created snakes and mosquitoes and stinky bugs, he has a reason for everything. Thank you for the timely reminder.

  2. I love His sense of imagination, and of humor! Who else could've created a rhino and a rose
