Dust gathers. There is no doubt about it.
It gathers high and low, on small spaces and large spaces. It is not noticeable alone. It takes many pieces of dust to be seen. This does not diminish the individual piece, for each piece of dust makes a difference.
Each piece of dust makes a difference to the other dust it encounters. Does the dust bless or curse the other pieces? It seems to me this is the independence of the dust: the choice to bless or to curse.
Today, sit with this idea of the impact you make on the world as a piece of dust. Where do you bless? Where do you curse? How does God want to transform you into God’s agent of blessing?
I am grateful to all those who I encounter today as agents of blessing. I pray that I may live beyond myself and be a blessing to others.
With a grateful heart,
