I used to look at pictures of earth taken from space
and wonder why we think its important this
thing we call the human race. But deep inside
I also knew we count - we do - and I was
never really able to reconcile the two.
Then finally it dawned on me that the importance of a thing
is not what it brings in terms of size or how long it lives
but rather the reckoning of it God gives.
And He has made it clear through the giving
of His Son that He values the souls of the living
and the one who never departs from His
teaching will live with Him forever.
So yes, our souls are small in might but
they are indeed precious in the sight of Him
who has the power to deliver us from darkness
into His marvellous light.
