The earth he has given to the sons of men.—Psalm 115:16.
The earth appears to be unique among all of God’s creation. Just imagine, out of the unknown number of planets that exist in the Milky Way and beyond, Jehovah created the earth to be not merely a habitable place but a comfortable, beautiful, and safe home for his human creation! (Isaiah 45:18) This reflects how Jehovah must love us. (Job 38:4, 7; Psalm 8:3-5) Though Jehovah created a wonderful home for us, he knows that for us to be happy and content, we need more than material provisions. A child feels truly secure when he senses his parents’ love and attention. Jehovah created humans in his image, giving them the spiritual capacity to sense and to respond to his love and care. (Genesis 1:27) Furthermore, Jesus said: “Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need.” (Matthew 5:3) As a loving Father, Jehovah “richly provides us with all the things we enjoy,” both physically and spiritually.
