Just Because

by Becky Hitchcock

Because is a great word. With a fun blend of consonants and vowels, it’s easy on the ear. 


Yet it has depth. It indicates the why of something. The motive. The reason for a particular thing. The word thrills me actually. It makes me recall something historically and spiritually profound. It allows me to ponder a great demonstration and sacrifice on behalf of a great cause. 


The word because helps me ponder the Savior.


It takes me to the beginning of our beginning. The Scriptures are chock-full with details of God’s passion for all creation. His creation. All things were made by Him and He liked them. He called them good. In fact, He is so delighted He talks to Himself.


Let Us make man in Our image.
Genesis 1:26 NKJV


And so, from the dust of the earth, He brought forth mankind. He breathed life into us. He gave us the ability to speak, reason, and choose. He gave us a beautiful garden to tend and enjoy. He gave us delicious foods to partake. Moreover, we had the privilege of His company.
