A Handful of Dust

Is that all we are, just a handful of dust? If you buy into the Darwinian and atheistic worldview then you answer must be yes. You see, if all we are is just a chance mutation and nothing more than a million years of naturalistic evolution than we are no more special than any other animal that roams the earth.

This is all there is. Life has no meaning except to continue the species. We are nothing more than a delivery package for our DNA. When we die we are just food for the next generation and not very good for that since we are six feet down in a metal box.

If they are right then we need to grab for all there is in this life. Have all the fun we can have. Live for today for there is no tomorrow. Make a splash now because in a hundred years no one will know you even existed.

Yet, what is they are wrong? Maybe we are more than just a random assortment of atoms. Maybe we are more than just our DNA. Maybe we are special. For all their trying they cannot answer some very basic questions. Why is anything here? How did life first begin? How does the mind work and why? Why are we self aware? Finally, why do people everywhere seek God?

But if they are wrong and the Bible right, then we have these answers. We know there is more. Life has meaning. This is not all there is. Something great awaits us. God wants to have a relationship with each of us. All the answers are there you just need to pick up a Bible and read. Seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened.

Have a blessed day,


About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
