Small vs. Big

Today, after listening to Louis Giglio talk about the cosmos, the Milky Way, and the little blue dot in the (now famous) Voyager picture...I realize I am small.

This planet, Earth, is small.

Our solar system, is small.

Any problems I have: small.

Any challenges I am going to face: small.

My grocery list: small.

My laundry pile: small.

The Milky Way: big.

The "Known" Universe: big.

The God who created it all: big.

And, yet, a careful reading of scripture suggests God knows this small person--zigging and zagging through her life on the blue dot--has a name.

That's big.
