William Beebe and Theodore Roosevelt would often go outdoors to locate the galaxy of Andromeda. Then one would say, "This is the spiral galaxy of Andromeda. It's as large as our Milky Way and one of a hundred million galaxies. It's 750,000 light years away. It consists of one hundred billion suns, each one larger than our sun." After that, Roosevelt would smile and say, "Now I think we are small enough." Seeing the vastness of the universe revealed to them how small they really were. God's people are called to be humble. Do you dwell on how rotten, insignificant or unholy you are? No. Do it the same way Roosevelt and his friend did. Don't dwell on yourself - dwell on something bigger than yourself. The biggest thing you can look at is God. You become humble by forgetting about yourself and looking at God. True humility is not based on your smallness but on His bigness. It is written, "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers... What is man that You are mindful of him..." Get lost in the bigness of God... and being humble will be child's play.
From Message #508 - The Dance Of The Heavenly
Whatever you're dealing with, look at the big picture of God and His love -- and let it shrink and overwhelm everything else in comparison.
