CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 24, 2013

         IF YOU WANT TO FEEL INSIGNIFICANT LOOK AT THE NEW PICTURES NASA HAS JUST RELEASED. THEY SHOW THE EARTH FROM 900 MILLION MILES AWAY. THE LITTLE WHITE DOT THAT IS EARTH IS SO SMALL, AN EDITOR FELT THE NEED TO INSERT AN ARROW SO PEOPLE COULD FIND IT. SATURN’S RINGS SHOW UP MUCH LARGER THAN OUR TINY PLANET.

         LOOKING AT THE PHOTO REMINDS US OF THE PETTINESS OF OUR LITTLE SQUABBLES, WARS AND EGOS. IT ALSO SHOULD REMIND US OF THE VASTNESS OF GOD WHO CREATED EVERYTHING, INCLUDING OUR PLANET, FROM NOTHING. THE PSALMIST SAYS THE HEAVENS ARE TELLING THE GLORY OF GOD. THIS NASA PICTURE IS JUST ONE OF MANY, MANY EXAMPLES OF HIS GLORY.

         SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT HUMILITY GETS GOD’S ATTENTION MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE WE DO. THIS ONE PICTURE OF EARTH SHOULD HUMBLE US ALL.

         AND TO THINK THAT GOD WOULD SEND HIS SON TO EARTH TO DIE FOR US THAT WE MIGHT FIND OUR WAY BACK TO HIM, A WAY BLOCKDED BY SIN. IT IS AMAZING GRACE, ISN’T IT? I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
