Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. Genesis 1:16
He made the stars also.
It reads almost like an afterthought.
The beauty and the wonder of the stars stretch out before us every evening.
We are awed by brilliant colors captured in the breathtaking telescope pictures.
We gaze up at the vast expanses and feel small, insignificant and unseen.
But the billions of stars hung across the incomprehensible distances of space are counted as a small detail in the creation account.
Not so with human beings.
We were made in God’s image. Lovingly fashioned by His very hands. Infused with the breath of God.
