Who am I? A grain of sand on the beach! A drop in the ocean! A insignificance! One of a thousand? No less! One in a million? No, even less! One of a billion then? No! Less than that too. Am I nothing? Only a zero?
Yes, in terms of the world's standards, I am nothing! I live. I'm dying. And then I'm gone. But am I just an insignificant? No fortunately not. In summer we visited Ravensbourg; the town with all the puzzles. Of course I had to find a store that sold the products with the blue mark on the corner. On the side of the shelf it hung a supervisor with an explanation of the different types of puzzles. The puzzle for the smallest had few and large pieces. For those somewhat older, were the pieces smaller and several, and for the elders the pieces was small and numerous.
So I think it is with us humans too. For our families, we are big, important pieces, - just as they are important for us. Among friends and colleagues, we are smaller chips, but still important. In the community we are part of we are justst mall pieces. When you opens a puzzle with 10,000 pieces, and there is much blue sky there to put together, then many of the pieces seem identical. There is still only one that fits in every place and every piece must be there for the picture to be complete.
I AM therefore important! I have a place to fill among men. But even bigger and more important am I to God. Even if all the people who have lived from the creation of, are more than it is possible to count, - I'm - even tiny little me - a person who is seen and loved by Him who is above everything and everyone!
How poor you are, you who do not believe that God exists! Even if God would not exist (something I am convinced that he is) will still my BELIEVE that he exist make me richer than those who do not believe. There is a great wealth in getting to know that I am loved by the One who created heaven and earth! To be allowed to be in His care who holds the world in his hand. Gaining to be surrounded by his love, who gave his own life for to give me LIFE!
I am NOT a zero! I am God's precious's eye!
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his son to be the propitiatin for our sins.
