As I watch this movie about the vastness of space, I’m reminded of how small and insignificant I am. Yet, at the same time, I’m reminded even more of the One who created the stars and galaxies with mere words, upholds them with those same words, and made a way for us to know Him and have a relationship with Him.
In Ecclesiastes 3:11, it says that God has “put eternity into the hearts of man.” We’re all searching for the answer to some of life’s hardest questions, but we don’t realize that the answer to these questions is found in the one who made us. How can we know that we’re making a difference?
My desire to earn God’s favor with my performance alone was the tower I was trying to build to reach to Heaven. It may not have looked prideful on the surface, but it was an attempt to earn His favor without needing Him.
