For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.  139:13–16) Page 64 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?

Yonder is the sea, great and wide, creeping things innumerable are there. living things both small and great. There go the ships, and leviathan that you formed to sport in it. These all look to you to give them their food in due season; when you give to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand. they are filled with good things.  104:10–16, 25–28, NRSV) The psalmist affirms that the natural world is dependent on God for its order and its continuing existence.  It is common for artists and creative people to go to the outdoors for renewal and inspiration.

As Christians we can call upon God through prayer and petition when we need guidance or help, as we work to accomplish God's purpose.  The owner expects the employees to do the work, contribute to that purpose, and care about the product.  We reap the benefit of the harvest and find fulfillment in the work.  If we turn away from God or tamper with our connections with the creation, we suffer from a godless life, and the creation suffers with us.  What is the significance of that name?  Why should we study the natural world?
