So Small

 

Felix Baumgartner

 

Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner successfully completed a 24-mile jump through the stratosphere yesterday. Reaching a speed of over 833 miles per hour, Baumgartner became the first skydiver to fall faster than the speed of sound.

 

After the jump, Baumgartner reflected, “Sometimes we have to get really high to see how small we are.”

 

You can also get a perspective of our smallness simply by looking up into the heavens. David wrote, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:3-5).

 

The universe can indeed make us seem small and insignificant. Yet God wants us to know that each one of us is very important to him, and that we have a special role to play in life.
