Made from dust

18 Jan

Adam was made from dust. You and I were made from dust. We will return to dust.

Have you ever asked yourself the following question: Why did God make us from dust?

Dust is essentially useless.

It’s dirty.

It’s ugly.

It’s weak.

I’ve never seen anyone admire dust.

So why did God make Adam (and us) from dust?

You have already read the reasons.

God designed it this way. You see, HE makes us useful.

HE makes us clean.

HE makes us beautiful.

HE makes us strong.

In order to be all of these things, we are required to return to Him and depend on Him.

The amazing things of our lives are not defined by who we are, but rather by what He does in us.

I’m glad to be dust. Are you?
