Maybe its just who humans are.
We like to change flat surfaces. Add a decoration. Or create a house. Or construct a hill (or mountain, which we can name Blackstrap!).
A protuberance just seems to make things a little less boring.
I struggle to keep a balance between changing (I call it improving) everything I see, or just enjoying the view.
God doesn’t take sides on this one, as far as I can tell. He did a great job of creating our world. The prairies are a prize possession of his, I’m sure.
Every once in a while, a volcano may push up a pimple on the flat surface of our earth. Or the wind creates a beautiful pattern in the sand deserts of the earth.
Which seems to imply that God wants us to keep our eyes open – at all times. You never know what may pop up.
