DayBreaks for 1/06/17: We’ve Done Everything Else
There was a time when the people didn’t venture out onto the seas. There was a time when the idea of a person flying through the air like a bird was grounds for commitment to an insane asylum. And don’t even mention the notion of man escaping the bounds of earthly gravity to walk on the surface of another celestial body. Yet, all those things have come to pass.
There was even a time in Scripture when mankind decided to build a tower to reach heaven itself. And, apparently, they were making some pretty good progress because God stepped in and convoluted their language and plans to prevent it from happening.
It seems, doesn’t it, that there is no limit to what mankind can accomplish? Well, I’m sure there are limits, but that’s not the point here. I recently ran across this quote from William Sloan Coffin and it struck me to the heart:
We have learned to soar through the air like birds, to swim through the seas like fish, to soar through space like comets. Now it is high time we learned to walk the earth as the children of our God.
Let this be the year when we make that our highest objective and greatest resolution!
PRAYER: God, a year from now, I pray that we can all look back and see that we have walked this earth more like your children than we ever have before! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
