You may have heard, but today is the 50th anniversary of the first time man walked on the moon. It was a HUGE deal–for one thing, it was kind of a competition between us and Russia (who was the other superpower country of the time), to see who could do it first. But besides that, it really gave a new understanding of the world, and it gave people all over the globe hope in what man can accomplish.
When we work together, we can do a lot of good in the world. Think of the possibilities of what we can solve if we work with people around the world–climate change, hunger, clean water–the possibilities are endless. God’s word tells us to treat all people equally and to work as a community.
5 May God who gives patience, steadiness, and encouragement help you to live in complete harmony with each other—each with the attitude of Christ toward the other. 6 And then all of us can praise the Lord together with one voice, giving glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.Romans 15: 5-6 (TLB)
Dear Lord, Thank you for amazing things people accomplish every day, like flying to the moon. Give me wisdom to learn new things, and the wisdom to share knowledge and work in a community, not just for my own glory. Amen.
