“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 soul”
– Genesis 2:7
We are made from dirt. And that says a lot to me.
Dirt is versatile. It can go wherever the wind blows. But when clumped together it can create something. When wet it can be molded.
Yes it is messy and dirty. But have you ever seen a kid play with dirt? They aren’t concerned with getting dirty They are excited by all the possibilities of what could be created. That’s how I imagine God is with us. He isn’t concerned with getting his hands dirty… He sees possibility.
So we shouldn’t be concerned with getting dirty. We already are dirty and God loves us. He sees something worth working with.
Hallelujah! That is good news!
