The Flying Insect Eradicator
The incredibly beautiful bat – coming up on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
For most people, bats bring to mind words like “creepy” and “ugly”. However, over 450 years ago, Martin Luther marveled at the delicate beauty of the bat, saying it was an excellent witness to the skill and wisdom of the Creator.
God must also like bats. Almost one-fourth of all mammals He created are bats! The flying fox bat has a wingspan of nearly six feet. Bumblebee bats, native to Thailand, are the smallest mammals known, weighing less than a penny. There are brilliantly patterned tropical bats called butterfly bats. And hundreds of species of tropical plants depend on bats as pollinators.
Most important to us, bats will eat abut 600 mosquitoes an hour. So next time you see a bat, don’t recoil in fear. Rather, say a prayer of thanksgiving to the Creator who made both of you.
