The Big Picture

We have been studying the beatitudes at the Women's Bible Study and last week's discussion was on "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth"  Matthew 5:5 from the book Heaven on Earth by Chris Seidman & Joshua Graves.

I'm a visual person and the connection to really understanding this verse was made for me through an illustration of a famous painting by Georges Seurat A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

If you've ever felt small or insignificant I hope you can also appreciate this painting.  If you look close you'll see that the painting is made up entirely of small colored dots.  Even though we don't know or understand how God is working in our lives, trust that you are part of the big picture. 

Being meek means being small - that is being totally surrendered to God and knowing we are part of His purpose and plan.
