With or Without People?

Share with your friends on Facebook

A second grader once asked his teacher how much the earth weighed. 

The teacher looked up the answer online. “Six thousand million, million tons,” she answered. 

The little boy thought for a minute and then asked, “Is that with or without people?”

Viewed from one perspective, it might very well seem that people don’t really matter very much. After all, we are but microscopic inhabitants of a tiny planet orbiting a relatively obscure star in a small galaxy among the billions and billions of stars and galaxies that make up creation. 

Yet the God of creation has counted the very hairs of our heads. Wow! What a magnificent picture of God.

Thanks to King Duncan for sharing and to Mikhail Nilov for the photo. 

Spend some time on a clear night, a sunrise or a sunset marveling at all that God has created!

IF YOU’RE NOT HUNGRY FOR GOD, YOU’RE PROBABLY TOO FULL OF YOURSELF!
