Beyond Understanding

Sirach 1:1-2
All wisdom is from the Lord and remains with him forever. The sands of the sea, the drops of rain, the days of eternity—who can count them?

Did you know that a single grain of sand contains 22 quintillion atoms (that’s 22 with 18 zeroes)? Rob Bell in his latest book titled What We Talk About When We Talk About God says that an “atom is in size to a golf ball as a golf ball is in size to Earth.” He goes on to explain how science has now revealed a whole lot of other subatomic particles that make an atom appear to be a giant. Meanwhile the edge of the universe is roughly ninety billion trillion miles away…and expanding. God is still creating. It’s mind boggling. You and I are part of this on-going creation. And despite how tiny each of us is in the spectrum of the universe…we know through Jesus that each of us…is infinitely loved.

Suggested song of the day– “How Wonderful to Me” on the Live to Love album.
