September 16th – Genesis 1:16

Genesis 1:16

God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.

I’m a star gazer. I love looking up at the night sky full of light. To see the stars twinkle, a meteor shooting across the sky, and the fullness of the moon, fill me with awe for our great Creator. And remind with of the intricacy in which God so loving and purposefully made our universe and everything in it. The sky and all it contains, serves as God’s reminder for us today. Just as these celestial bodies have distinct roles in governing our day and night, we can apply this concept to our own lives. It encourages us to recognize the importance of balance and order. We should strive to find equilibrium between the different aspects of our lives. Between work and rest, responsibilities and play, and light and darkness. Why? Because balance between our spiritual, personal, and worldly responsibilities helps us to better reflect God’s love. It equips us to serve others with compassion, and maintain the strength needed to face life’s challenges while also nurturing our relationship with God.
