The only lesson about man to be learned from watching sunsets and stars the only reflection worth having is not mans insignificance, but his greatness. He is the masterpiece of Gods creation.
Man is small only before his Creator. Against the shining stars and the gleaming galaxies and the fiery sun he looms as a giant among pygmies, for unlike them he is immortal. He shares in the divine life, because He who is divine chose to share mans life.
The brightest sunset is but the shadow of the glory of God. And the dark night of death is but the prelude to the day that will never end. In the dying of the light every day is the promise that the Light will return, never to be extinguished.
