In our world, we are small, and likewise, in the universe our world is infinitesimal. Many people have difficulty believing that people on such a small part of the universe could actually matter to God.
For some this is where they have a departure from the idea of God at all.
But today, perhaps we should give thought to how wonderful and amazing the creation is. We are surrounded by incredible complexity and beauty, even everyday matters such as the workings of our brains are beyond our comprehension.
A step in the experiencing of joy is to be aware, and then grateful for the many good things that life holds for us.
Let’s take time to give to building awareness. Allow it to blossom into appreciations and then into joy.
Yes, we are small in both space and time, but God invites us into eternity; and has given us the capacity to grow into it.
