When I got married I thought I had found the perfect woman. She hated to mop and I hated to dust, so I would do all of the mopping and she did the dusting. Most of us think of dust as a nuisance. Something that none of us want to collect, yet we all do.
God looks at dust a little differently. He actually loves dust. How do I know that? Because He formed, or made, man from dust, and God loves us.
Gen 3:19 “…for dust you are and to dust you shall return.”
Yep, that’s right, you came from dust, and you are loved by God.
While I was attending this year’s writer’s conference, held at Wheaton College, in Wheaton, Illinois I was getting away for a moment and went to the 5th floor. I started noticing some really cool art. Then my eyes became fixated upon the image posted at the top of this blog. It was so beautiful. Then I read the little white sign to the right of the art. The title of this piece of art is, “Corpus” by David JP Hooker. The art piece is the contents of vacuum bags collected from all over the campus of Wheaton College.
If a man can make a master piece like this from dust imagine what God can do with dust. Just imagine what God can do with you.
