"God Doesn't Make No Junk"

So, because I am on this Bible challenge, I am reading the book of Hebrews. I'm trying to finish it all tonight, but it shouldn't be hard...

A couple of passages in Hebrews stuck out to me:

"You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. (Ps. 122:25-27)  They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; (Is. 34:4; Is. 50:9; 51:6.) Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will not fail. (Heb. 13:8)"  - Heb. 1:10-12. 

Okay, so basically those are from different books of the Bible, but they are listed in Hebrews as well.

These verses are basically saying that God doesn't change. He stays the same. He isn't going anywhere. He is always here for us in great accomplishments and gut-wrenching tragedies. He is true and faithful.

"What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You take care of him? (Ps. 8:4-6)" - Heb. 2:6. 

What did we as humans do to deserve God's love and faithfulness? Absolutely nothing! We don't deserve it. We fail him all the time. We don't always live exactly as we should and we aren't always the people we should be. Nevertheless, God doesn't leave us, He stays by our side.

"For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God." -Heb. 3:4

I think we sometimes forget that God made all things and all things God made are beautiful, including humans. Every human is beautiful in his/her own way. God doesn't make mistakes...or as the old saying goes "God doesn't make no junk!".

What do you think?

On a mission for God,

    Our society has definitely brainwashed us to think that if we don't look or act a certain way, we amount to nothing. Of course, God says differently. We are made in His image and we are beautiful; we have a purpose and reason for our existence.
