Blogging or Tweeting is like taking a handful of change and flinging it into the stands in a crowded stadium. It’s not much, but you hope whoever picks up that nickel, dime, or a couple of pennies can benefit from it. Unfortunately, there may be a few slugs among the genuine coins.
It’s pretty random, isn’t it? It’s like shouting into the universe from your own backyard. I’ve heard that our soundwaves travel forever into distant galaxies. If we could travel faster than the speed of sound maybe we could still hear Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
This reminds me of a favorite Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. Calvin is standing in his yard at night, looking up at the stars. He shouts, “I’m significant!” The last frame shows him whispering, “Screamed the dust speck.”
We are dust – like grains of sand at the beach or the stars in the heavens. That doesn’t mean we’re insignificant.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. -Genesis 2:7
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. -Genesis 1:27
We are image-bearers of our Creator, and that carries a lot of responsibility. As Christians, we are carriers of the Ruach haKodesh, the Holy Spirit. Paul says we are Ambassadors for Christ. We are His witnesses.
We have access to the riches of Heaven, but all I have room for, in my soul, is pocket change. But, I know there’s more where that came from. So I share a little here, and a little there, and hope you pick up what makes sense. It’s my two cents’ worth.
