Of Men and Worms

Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:“Dominion and fear are with God;
he makes peace in his high heaven.Is there any number to his armies?
Upon whom does his light not arise?How then can man be in the right before God?
How can he who is born of woman be pure?Behold, even the moon is notbright,
and the stars are not pure in his eyes;how much less man, who is a maggot,
and the son of man, who is a worm!” Job 25:1-6.Yes, compared to God, we are unworthy vermin. Yet, he cares enough to get involved with our lives and communicate with us. Eventually, He will even come to earth as one us, suffer being accused and tried and executed, and promise us eternal life. But no on one living in Bildad’s day knows this. It is a time of limited vision.
