My wife and I watched the movie “First Man” recently. Have you seen it? It tells the story of Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing. It’s incredible to think of a man landing on the moon—so far away! The universe makes us human beings seem so small, doesn’t it?
I bet God enjoys our little trips into space, because the bigger we realize the universe is, the bigger we realize God’s love is for us! “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him” (Psalm 103:11). With every new discovery in space, marvel at how big God’s love for us must be. Then take it one step farther: If it was a big step for Neil Armstrong to step on the moon, imagine the big step Jesus took to leave heaven and live and die and rise as our Savior here on earth. Every time you look at the sky, remember that God loves you as high as the heavens!
