Today's daily words of encouragement is the word Dust. Try as we may, to get rid of dust' by cleaning, dusting and vacuuming, yet dust is still around us. The simple fact and truth is dust must be essential to us, because God made us from the dust of the earth. I guess we can be called the dust of life; because God formed man out of the dust and breathed life into his nostrils and he became a living being.
Dust represent a great importance to us, even though we all try to live without it. We are all dust and shall all return again back unto dust. Dust is the essence of our being, there no way around that fact, but we still try to live our lives dust free. God could have chosen anything else besides dust to create man out of, but he chose the dust of the earth, so there has to be some significance in his choice of dust instead of any other matter.
