Chameleons are a type of lizard and they live in many parts of the world. What makes them such interesting creatures is that some chameleons have the ability to change color. The outer layer of their skin is transparent (you can see through it) and underneath are cells that produce color.

Certain types of chameleons may change color to attract other chameleons, to adjust to hot and cold temperatures, to camouflage, or hide itself. They may change color when angry or when they want to frighten or scare others.

There are combinations that allow them to change to black, brown, red, purple, blue, pink, orange, green… Chameleons are an interesting and wonderful part of God’s creation, but you never know what you are going to get with a chameleon.

It’s kind of like being around someone who changes their mind a lot. You never know what to expect. That can feel a bit uncomfortable.

The Bible teaches us that God “is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (13:8). God’s love is unchanging and something we can count on.

God’s unchanging and constant love gives us reason to be cheerful and brave. “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear” (13:6).
