Thank A Plant!

When you get up in the morning, take a deep breath and thank a plant! Plants take in carbon dioxide that we breathe out and they give back oxygen that you and I need in order to breathe [taken from THANK A PLANT!, Kids Think And Believe Too!, Summer 2004].

Plants give us much more than just oxygen to breathe. Put a plant in some dirt, give it some air, water, and sunshine, and what do you get?

You get: oxygen, textiles, lumbers, oils, medicines, paper, foods, grains, herbs, fruit, seeds, fertilizers, aromas, soil binders, beauty, poisons, alcohols, and so much more!

And don’t forget two of the most important products of plants for some of us … CHOCOLATE and COFFEE … which came from a plant!

As I began to look more and more at the complex systems plants use to produce all of the ingredients to make the above products, I was once again convinced that it could never have happened by chance and accident (aka evolution).

I am convinced that only an intelligent Creator (aka God) could have come up with plants!

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.    Genesis 1: 11
