In the Universe, You Are Tiny. But This Doesn’t Mean You’re Insignificant.

Louie Giglio thinks that if the universe is meant to be for us, it’s much too big, but if it’s meant to reveal God’s glory, it’s just about the right size. Despite this tiny, insignificant world, God really does come to us.

The famed astronomer Carl Sagan has a monologue on “the pale blue dot” that, on its own, is almost as famous as the man who said it. The fact that in the vastness of the universe Earth is tiny, imperceptibly small, a dust mote floating in a beam of sunlight even as the world is not just that room…seems somehow insignificant to Sagan, and to the agnostics who cannot see help coming from far away to this planet of war and suffering. But Louie Giglio has another view: that if the universe is meant to be for us, it’s much too big, but if it’s meant to reveal God’s glory, it’s just about the right size. See how despite this tiny, insignificant world, God really can be found anywhere!
