Our Senses Are Gifts From Our Creator God!

Be thankful for them, and use them in ways that will please God!


See: Eyes

See to the glory of God!
A rainbow, the sunset, the ocean . . . remember that God is the Creator of all and give Him thanks. “Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His deeds” (Psalm 66:5, ESV).


Smell: Nose

Smell to the glory of God!
Sweet-smelling flowers, freshly baked bread, a gentle rain. Give praise to God for the sense of smell! ”God . . . gives us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17).


Feel: Hands

Touch to the glory of God!
A gentle hug or a friendly pat shows your love. “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39).


Hear: Ears

Listen to the glory of God!
Birds, soft music, your mom’s laugh . . . thank you, God, for the special gift of hearing. “Every good and every perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17).


Taste: Tongue

Eat to the glory of God!
So much wonderful food and great flavors to thank God for. “Every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God” (Ecclesiastes 3:13).
