Christian Living God's Love

Priceless Dust

God’s words – God’s truth – begins in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, written by Noah.

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1

God created a world for us to live in and enjoy. He created a man (Adam) and a woman (Eve) to start our heritage.

“then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.” – Genesis 2:7

When we think about being formed from dust, it may not be an appealing first thought. But it should be a thought full of awe and wonder. God is our creator. God can make something wonderful from nothing.  God created the dust knowing He would create man from it. God created a body from dust that came alive when He breathed life into the nostrils.

Our society wastes so much time measuring our worth by our successes, or lack of successes. How shallow can we be in our thoughts?

Each one of us is an invaluable, work of art created by God, the creator of the universe. Our immeasurable worth comes from God, who chose to give us the miraculous gift of life simply because He loves us more than we will ever be able to measure.
