And the breath of all mankind?

Job 12:10 Bible Commentary
Job 12:10 Bible Commentary

To us this means that our loving and caring God did make everything, including all the animals, and all of us; therefore, who are we to question God’s purposes?

When we tie this together with these 7-12 verses, it therefore stands to reason that human beings are also subject to the same spiritual laws that govern the animals, and the rest of creation.

Furthermore, in Job 12:10 we were charged with protecting the whole of creation. And with the exception of the true peacemaking children of God, we haven’t been doing what the Lord wanted us to do. This, we believe, brings these non-followed laws back upon our own heads. We believe that this is all part of the creative power of God to wake people up in the future to the errors of their ways, and bring them to repentance. Hopefully, this will help us become the peacemaking children of God that we were created to be.

  1. Repentance and contriteness have been on my mind for a while now. A few years ago until now I went through a process of purifying my thoughts and ways and developing a humility and repentance for all the things I have done. It allowed me to develop a much fuller compassion and respect for all life, from the creatures in the sky to those in the water, the insects and the animals with whom we are part of the same family.

    After starting to become more devoted to living a meeker life and following through with my eating choices and how i spent my time and money, it became all the more sorrowful to look at others in the world who were unable to feel sorry for the serious harm they have caused to other life and repent and change their ways. A misplaced pride, selfishness and a lack of education among people is stopping so many of us from becoming the gentle and sincere spirits we ought to become.

    The book of isaiah reminds us that those who will dwell with god are of a humble and contrite spirit. These are necessary requirements to being fully formed good people. I think a robust psychological and neurological (if this is the right terminology) understanding of repentance may prove to be one of the most important developments we make as we seek the kingdom of God here on earth.

    1. Hi Adam:
      You have the right attitude and an interesting way of describing the hardness of heart that is do prevalent in this world.

      We describe what you feel as being empathy, and it’s that empathy coupled with the unction of the Holy Spirit that allows us to feel the what the whole of creation feels.

      Thank you very much.
