It’s Okay to Be Human

What is mankind, that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?  Psalm 8:4 NIV

it's okay to be humanI once saw a news story about a near incident on an airplane.

The plane’s landing gear did not engage. But a brilliant pilot overrode the autopilot and safely landed the plane with all its passengers. No atheists probably flew on that plane. Some might have felt like kissing Mother Earth upon landing. Home in one piece, as my father said.

In these days of robots and automation, we can still read our Bible, which humans wrote. As the psalmist says, God’s words tell us it is okay to be human and care for others.

We have feelings, thoughts, and emotions. And it may take many years to figure out our life mission. At some stage, however, we can devote all our gifts and human foibles to God. God sent us His Son, Jesus, in human form, and we should feel love for our Lord.

God loves us to the moon and beyond—and our critters. Our mission is to pray for our Christian faith and each other. We can all pray for our freedom to continue believing in Jesus.

No robot can replace the great faith of Christianity. For those passengers, their unautomated pilot, and us, it is okay to be human.

What are some ways you show it is okay for you to trust God?
