They jump and wiggle. They eat a lot. They are not hungry kids. They are jumping worms!
Jumping worms eat the top part of soil. That takes food from other animals and plants.
Pray people will know how to stop jumping worms from doing harm. We need wisdom to take care of God’s world.

Eggs stick to hiking shoes and drop in new places. Jumping worms eat the nutrient-rich top two inches of soil. Small dead animals, insects, and leaf litter are in that layer. Birds lose food. Plants lose good soil. May God help us protect all He has made. The Lord planted a garden for Adam “to work it and keep it.” (Genesis 2:15)
