The world is big. I mean, really, really big.

Recently our family returned from a trip visiting relatives in eastern Montana. It’s about a ten-hour drive from our home. At about hour 4-5 I begin to go crazy sitting in the car. We try to create fun car games and listen to podcasts and music to pass the time, but it’s still tough.

The thing is, our little trip only traversed less than 1% of 1% of the area of the planet. It’s easy to forget how large the world is, and placing it within context of the solar system, our galaxy and the entire universe . . . well, the world is really without end.

I believe that is a metaphor God places for life, too. It is without end. Life goes on and on and on . . . that’s not something to be afraid of, but a concept that we only begin to touch when we experience the divine.

May we never forget God’s precepts and lordship! God continues on . . . forever!
