USB Keys



I'm one of those people that has a USB key. I have two, actually, one is 128 MB, and the other is 1 GB. I discovered something disconcerting recently, and that is that every single document I have ever created in the whole course of my life could fit neatly onto one USB key (perhaps the larger one). Those things are tiny! It was a very humbling experience to see how, practically, all of our life is but dust, and not very much of that.

In Christ.

This reminded me of Psalm 8: 3-4:
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

A very good point!!! I am guessing though, that you don't take many pictures! =) Or do you consider that making a document?

The other thing that comes to mind is a proverb (I'm too lazy to look it up, though) which says "Of the making of books there will be no end." And another which says "there is nothing new under the sun." You see, you may not have produced much, but the fact is even the most prolific producers still ultimately produce nothing new. Writing, as godly as it may be, is NOT an end in itself.

Thanks for the reality check, Adrian.
