My original plan for today’s meditation was going to be light as we celebrated an Eagles victory at the Super Bowl. Well, so much for that plan. All of the Eagles Universe is unhappy this morning. Perhaps later on we can say how much we appreciated the season, we can be reminded that only two teams make it to the big game and ours was one of them, and even celebrate the good things. But for today, Eagles fans are unhappy.
So let’s get theological on this Monday morning. The Eagles may have lost, but things are okay. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good (Genesis 1:31). You may be dragging this morning, but God’s creation is still very good. Your Kansas City fan friends might be chiding you, but God’s creation is still very good.
Things do not always go as we want, games will be won and lost, jobs will have good and bad days, relationships have their ups and downs, but one thing is constant, God, and God loves you. As you travel through this difficult day and new week, remember this: God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. You were made by God and therefore, you are very good.
