As I read the line, “And know what souls are worth,” in hymn 57 of the LDS hymnbook, it sticks out to me. I think of Moses’ burning bush experience where he declares that “man is nothing” and Mormon’s statement that we are “less than the dust of the earth.” Despite this, we are priceless to God. When Adam and Eve transgress, God shows His love for them by promising to provide a Savior for them. We remember Adam and Eve and the covenants God made with them because their story is our story. It is in remembering that they were worth saving that gives us hope that we are just as precious to God.
Though they may not have taken center stage Isn’t funny that during one of the greatest events in history, the woodland creatures seem unaware and unaffected? They just carry on with their purpose, sweetly singing and buzzing away. It’s always been curious to me how in the same day one person can be having the best moment of their life, while another person finds that day perfectly ordinary. Nevertheless, the mundane does not make one’s day any less important.
