In the United States, millions of people went and experienced the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017. My wife and I were able to go see it, and it was quite an experience. The moon slowly moving in front of the sun and casting its shadow upon the earth was once of those once in a lifetime experience. As we were experiencing it, I was in awe of the wonderful and beautiful creation that God has created and I was blessed to witness.
God’s creation is truly beautiful and awe-inspiring. As beautiful as all of the earth is, we are infinitely more beautiful because we are created in his likeness and have the beautiful gift of free will. We use this gift to benefit ourselves and those that we know. We also use free will to do destructive things to our neighbors and ourselves. God is calling us to look to Jesus and love one another as he has loved us. Sometimes in the business of the world, we tend to forget to love our spouse, our neighbor, and our enemies. God’s call is love and it is in loving one another that we can transform the world. So as we remember the awesome beauty of the Solar Eclipse, never forget that we are more beautiful because we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.
