Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today
NL Daily Devotion for Monday, June 17, 2019

I dig science fiction. I also dig regular science, science.
One of the things that totally blows me away is the size of the universe. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger! Generally, most people find that their eyes start to glaze over when I mention that in our galaxy there are billions of stars, and that in the universe there are billions of other galaxies all with billions of stars!
In some ways, I believe the God we read about in scripture seems too small, almost petty when you think of the jealous acts God committed in the Old Testament. But maybe that’s the point of Holy Scripture for us, today. Perhaps we’re challenge to grow in our understanding just how LARGE our God is.
It is amazing, therefore, that God cares for each one of us. Even me.
Thank you, God, for caring when there are so many other things to care for. Amen.
