Goats of the World

by  Dallas Reese

Have you ever seen a goat? If you have, it was probably a dairy goat, which produces milk for people to use. Some goats still roam the wild, like the mountain goat that lives in the Rocky Mountains, Alaska's Yukon, and other places.

In the Bible, goats were used for different things. Proverbs 27:27 says, "You shall have enough goats' milk for your food and for your household." The curtains in the tabernacle were made of goats' hair (read Exodus 26:7). Goats were also used for sacrifices and offerings. Today, goats are still used around the world. For example, in Jamaica, goat meat is considered a delicacy. God created the greatest animals. It is a great thought to know that God created everything. I'm glad that God is my designer, aren't you?
