Lesser Light

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. (Genesis 1:16, NIV)

The lesser light, the moon, does not pout because the sun is the stronger beam. No. The moon does its very best and shines where God put it. The universe doesn’t spend its energy trying to overcome itself. It just does what it was created to do.

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? (Psalm 8:3-4, NIV)  

“The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.” – Westminster Catechism

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31, NIV)

Prayer –  Lord may we shine for you, no matter where you place us. In Christ, Amen
