Creation Devotional April 4 - Biology

Daily Devotional – April 4



Termites are famous for eating wood, especially in houses. Yet, termites cannot digest wood. It is the microbes in the gut of the termite that break down the wood that allows it to be digested. The termites cannot exist without the gut microbes, and the gut microbes cannot exist without the termites; both need each other in order to survive.


Science calls this symbiosis or mutualism. Some scientists say this relationship evolved by accident and chance. Why would termites begin to eat wood if they could not digest it? Why would gut  microbes make their home in termite guts if they were not getting the food they needed? Both termites and gut microbes had to be together from the beginning, mutually depending on each other. Who would have thought that termites and their gut microbes give glory to God!


I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live:

I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

~ Psalm 104:33

    Is "Pearls in paradise" a published work? Can I purchase a copy of it somewhere? I have googled for it but have come up empty.
