20131026-091643.jpgHow special am I?

On the one hand, I am tiny speck in the universe. As shown in the following video, our sun and solar system are relatively insignificant compared to the billions of other stars. Then, the ball of dirt that makes up our planet with its swirling atmosphere, vast oceans, and towering peaks is inhabited by millions of species and billions of humans.

It’s easy get lost in the crowd.  As the psalmist wrote, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” (Psalm 8:3-4 NIV)

But out of all of His Creation, God saved His best work for the miracle that is humanity. Listen to Louie Giglio explain how one cell turned into 75 trillion and the evidence that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, knit together in your mother’s womb.

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20 NIV)

Creation declares God saved His best creation for last when He formed humanity from the dust of the earth.

What about you? Do you feel insignificant or incredibly intricate? Is it possible to feel both impossibly small and extremely significant at the same time?
