A Clever Golden Toad

“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?” Matthew 6:26

All toads are not fat and ugly. The golden toad, which lives only in a few square miles of the cloud forest of Costa Rica, is a trim and slim toad with garishly bright orange coloring.

They sit motionless, waiting for the first female to arrive. Before long, the females begin to arrive, and a week or so later the entire population of golden toads, now numbering in the thousands, disappears back into the jungle to remain almost invisible for another year.

This breeding strategy shows a great deal of wisdom and understanding and ensures that there are plenty of golden toads in the next generation. Toads have many enemies in the jungle, but by all getting together at the same time, they can produce far more young than their predators can victimize in a single week.

You don’t have to be a college graduate to know that toads are incapable of the kind of planning and ability to change their physical natures necessary to carry out this strategy. Evolutionists would say that no one thought of this strategy. But the clear answer is that there is a Creator, and He cares about all of His creatures.

Dear Father, not a sparrow drops from the sky without Your knowledge and purpose. Not even toads lack Your care. Help me to remember Your care when I am anxious about the cares of living. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
