Natural Insect Repellent (Part 1 of 2)
How do seeds give us an insight into God’s creative genius? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
One interesting way in which to help young people gain an appreciation for God’s creation is to ask them to solve certain problems that the Creator Himself had to solve.
Let’s use the examples of seeds. Plants need seeds to produce the next generation. But what about all the insects that feed on seeds? As Creator, one could decide that insects will not eat seeds. But what will insects eat? Can we get rid of insects? If we do, what will we create to do all the important jobs that insects perform? The conclusion must be that we need insects, and they need to eat something. Seeds are a convenient food for them.
So how do we design seeds so that both plants and insects can benefit? Find out on tomorrow’s program.
