I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    —Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
    God, who needs nothing, loves into existence wholly superfluous creatures in order that he may love and perfect them.

    See also Ps. 139:14; Gen. 1:26-28; Job 41:10-11; Ps. 90:2; John 5:26; Acts 17: 24-25; 1 John 4:10; Rev. 4:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Spirit is perfecting each of Your people.
