A View From Above
There's something breathtaking about flying through the clouds. Soaring at thousands of feet above the earth puts a little perspective on the earth that God called good when He created it.
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. Deuteronomy 32:1-3
The God of all creation called this world good. As you look out the window of an airplane, this description is perfect. The clouds race each other across the sky. Cars, buildings and troubles all shrink as you climb higher and higher.
The beauty of the earth was formed in perfection by a great and loving God. He designed a lovely place for His lovely creation. The world is not a perfect place thanks to the ways of man, but we can strive to fill it with Christ's love through our own words and actions.
It's our responsibility to ascribe the greatness of our God, to proclaim His grace and mercy everywhere we go. The reflection of Christ through our lives is a precious, beautiful gift to the Lord. A view from above shows us how breathtaking the world can be, if we desire to make it that way.
