Why Did God Make Mosquitoes?
When we're being attacked by mosquitoes, it's easy to wonder why God made pests and other animals that can harm us. When God created the world, it was perfect. Only after sin entered the picture did animals and human beings become enemies, causing humans to protect and defend themselves. So now mosquitoes try to feed off of us. They, in turn, become food for birds and bats. In the future, in the new heaven and new earth, animals won't hurt people or each other.
In that day the wolf and the lamb will lie down together. And the leopard and goats will be at peace. Calves and fat cattle will be safe among lions. And a little child shall lead them all. The cows will graze among bears. Cubs and calves will lie down side by side. And lions will eat grass like the cows. Babies will crawl safely among deadly snakes. And a little child who puts his hand into a nest of adders will not be hurt. Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain. And as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord. (Isaiah 11:6-9)
Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 8:19-22
