It was 1969 that man landed on the moon.  When one considers the ‘primitive’ computers they used for the mission, the accomplishment seems even more extraordinary. 

    On the way back from the moon, Buzz Aldrin read a passage from Psalms 8:3-4.  “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou has ordained; What is man that thou art mindful of him? And the Son of Man, that thou visitest Him?” (KJV)

    I can’t even imagine what it would be like to walk on the moon or look out into space and see the earth suspended in blackness.  The pictures of earth taken from the moon made our home look so small and insignificant; a blue dot in the blackness of space.

    We may think we look insignificant but to God we are the opposite.  He looks at earth and sees His creation and yearns for each one of us to spend eternity with Him.  Unfortunately, not all of us will.  He gave each of us a free will.  We can choose to believe in His Son or reject His Son.  That decision decides our eternal home.  What is your decision?
