Christmas: Stories behind the Songs
Christmas: Stories behind the Songs, part 2

We recently went to Yosemite.
No one can see the splendor of those mountain cliffs without feeling the spectacular glory that it shows. But in spite of the glory, man still gives the wrong credit. The placards praised the man who discovered the valley, but forgot the Creator Who made it. We see God’s handiwork but don’t acknowledge Him.
We lose its splendor by the jostling crowd, from all over the world, taking selfies in front of cliffs. Our focus is obscured from seeing the mountains’ majesty, but we can't take it all away.

Before hiking, I read signs, “Don’t feed the bears, or we’ll have to kill them.” They say nothing of the danger to human life.
Or “Slow down for wildlife” with a silhouette of a bear with her cubs. They ignore the danger to the people who line the roadsides taking pictures.
Have we lost the value of human life and elevated nature as our god?
Have we forgotten our Creator?

The creation shouts of its Creator.
Of old You founded the earth and the heavens are the work of Your Hands.” Psalm 102:25
“O Lord my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty…
He established the earth upon its foundations, so that it will not totter forever and ever.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters were standing above the mountains,
At Your rebuke they fled, at the sound of Your thunder they hurried away.
The mountains rose; the valleys sank down to the place which You established for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass over, so that they will not return to cover the earth.
He sends forth springs in the valleys; They flow between the mountains; They give drink to every beast of the field. The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they lift up their voices among the branches.
He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.
He causes the grass to grow for the cattle. And vegetation for the labor of man.
So that he may bring forth food from the earth, and wine which makes man’s heart glad.
So that he may make his face glisten with oil, and food which sustains man’s heart.
The trees of the Lord drink their fill, the cedars of Lebanon which He planted, where the birds build their nests, and the stork, whose home is the fir trees….
O Lord, how many are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your possessions….
They all wait for You to give them their food in due season.
You give to them, they gather it up, You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
You hide Your face, they are dismayed; You take away their spirit, they expire and return to their dust.
You send forth Your Spirit, they are created and You renew the face of the ground.
Let the glory of the Lord endure forever;
Let the Lord be glad in His works; He looks at the earth, and it trembles.
He touches the mountains, and they smoke.
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
Let my meditation be pleasing to Him; as for me, I shall be glad in the Lord.
Let sinners be consumed from the earth and let the wicked be no more.
Bless the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord.”
Psalm 104
