"Your problems in perspective"

Take a look at the tiny earth below.  On those dots are all your problems and struggles, and those of 7+ billion other people.  In perspective, they don't seem so big any more do they?  Also in perspective, human pride and egos become nothing.

Earth, as a pale blue dot (distance: 6.000 million kilometers). 

Or here -- can you see the tiny, microscopic dot below?  That's us!
If you look hard, you can see it, at the end of the arrow's tip.

This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission.

What is really mind-boggling, is that the Creator of all this would take on human form and visit this tiny planet for the purpose of suffering and dying for our sins, because of His love for us.  Also, in physical size comparison, we are reduced to nothing, but in value, the Creator's love and sacrifice for us has made our value immeasurable.   In marketing, we learn that an item's value is based on what someone is willing to pay for it.  The Creator willingly paid the supreme price for each of us.   Only a fool would reject such a gift.  What amazing, indescribable love!  He is worthy of our complete love and trust in return.
