Whenever I get to feeling too big about myself, I make it a point to take a celestial stroll. Can you see those two little dots of light? It’s the earth and moon from 114 million miles away. Now, click on the picture to expand it. Can you see the cross?
While not a very far distance in terms of astronomical units, it conveys a sense of how alone we are, or would be, were it not for God and the son he sent to save us. The cross is on an asteroid called Faith. Not far from it is a dome wherein rests the heart and soul of man.
I wish I could take each of our worlds leaders out here, one at a time, so they could stand by the cross and see just how tiny their little piece of existence really is. A mere dust mote, upon the skin of which, seven billion souls of His making call home.
A word to the wise. Please, don’t fuck it up. It’s all we have.
