“Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time.

That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.” —Rick Warren

Perfect

QuantumLook up.

See all those stars? Even all the stars our most sophisticated telescopes can see don’t even come close to showing us all the stars in our universe.

And yet of all the stars and all the planets, our Earth is perfectly positioned by our Sun. If our Sun was any bigger, we’d get too much radiation and heat. If our Earth was any farther away, we’d be too cold to survive.

God placed Sun, Earth, moon and stars perfectly.

Look down.

Way down. All the way to the sub-atomic level.

Neutrons, protons, electrons all arranged perfectly. Too many protons or electrons—or too few—and matter wouldn’t hold together properly.

God placed those components of our atoms together perfectly.

Look in.

Right into your heart.

Gifts, talents, passions, insight, personality, temperament. All of those things in a perfect blend to make you.

You are unique. There’s never been anyone like you before, and there never will be another like you in the future.

God placed those attributes together in a perfect mixture to make you. Too much of this, or too little of that, and you wouldn’t be you.

What are you going to do with your you-ness? How about letting your Creator tell you exactly why He made you the way He did—

For YOU are God’s handiwork, perfectly created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for YOU to do. (Ephesians 2:10, with a slight change to personalize it)

God knows what He’s doing. He created the big universe perfectly. He created the sub-atomic universe perfectly. And He created you perfectly too.
