Fields and Forests of Medicine (Creation Moments Minute)

Fields and Forests of Medicine

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, find out how God filled the creation with chemical factories that provide temporary relief from pain and disease.

Foxglove, or digitalis, offers a treatment for heart failure. Quinine, from a South American tree, is used to treat malaria. Steroids come from a Mexican yam. A treatment for gout is made from the autumn crocus. A fungus that grows on the rye plant and caffeine from coffee beans are used to treat migraine headaches. White willow bark, which contains a form of aspirin, has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for pain and fever.

Pain, disease and death call our attention to our much more serious spiritual condition. We can thank God that He has provided the remedy for our sin in the forgiveness of sins through His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you taken the remedy by putting your trust in Him?
