DAILY READINGS: Gen. 35; Psalms 7:1-8:9; Matt. 19:16-20:16

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him? Psalm 8:3-4

If it cost a penny to travel a thousand miles, a cruise to the moon would be only $2.38. But if you wanted to go to the sun, the one-way ticket would cost $930. And a trip to the nearest star would be, hold onto your hat—$260 million. Yet a place in the very heart of the One who made this vast universe is free, based on the priceless sacrifice of Christ. Have you reserved your place? —William MacDonald

Wonder of wonders! Vast surprise! Can bigger wonder be?
That He who built the starry skies Once bled and died for me.
