With or Without People
With or Without People?
A second grader once asked his teacher how much the earth weighed. The
teacher looked up the answer in an Encyclopedia. "Six thousand million,
million tons," she answered. The little boy thought for a minute and then
asked, "Is that with or without people?" Viewed from one perspective, it
might very well seem that people don't really matter very much. After all,
we are but microscopic inhabitants of a tiny planet orbiting a relatively
obscure star in a small galaxy among the billions and billions of stars and
galaxies that make up creation. Yet the God of creation has counted the very
hairs of our heads. Wow! What a magnificent picture of God.
