Genesis 2:7 NASB "Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living person"It wasn't much fun to play with, it just sat there! Today's verse speaks about what makes us different from just being a pile of dust! Playing with one of my grandsons, he had found a balloon but it wasn't much fun to play with until we blew it up, then it came to life! Hitting it back and forth as we tried to keep it from hitting the ground became a wonderful time of laughter and fun. Life without the breath of God is just like the un-inflated balloon - it just kind of sits there and does nothing! We have within each of us the breath of God, it's what makes us different from a pile of dirt so let's rejoice in the knowledge that we are the living breathing spirit of our living God - no longer sitting around doing nothing! Get up and bounce across the room - it will make others laugh and smile! peace, tom
