Just think of the fragility of your existence. Your body, if it is alive, is complex balance of chemical reactions, cellular growth and division, respiration and blood flow, and organs and glands working together in an intricate dance of life. And in our scripture reading, the Lord is revealed as holding it all in His hand. As you read our scripture passage for today, realize anew how dependent you are upon the Lord. After all…He holds you in His hand.
In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
