So, you think you know your Bible? From which book of the Bible comes the principle of significance? You don’t know?
Look to Deuteronomy chapter 1 verses 9 through 18 with me.
If you are one in a million, you shouldn’t count on being very significant to a government person.
So, what wisdom did Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law dispense? Jethro instilled in Moses’ thinking the principle of significance.
Looking back to Exodus 18, verse 25, we learn how better it is to be one in thousand than to be one in a million. The smaller the representation, the greater the significance of the individual.
It was the Biblical principle of significance that inspired our founding fathers to create a bicameral Congress that lends significance to the individual (House of Representatives) and significance to the separate states (Senate).
The system of checks and balances built into our human government is essential to good order because of the sin nature of man. Establishment and maintenance of the Legislative branch serves to secure your rights through the principle of significance.
What is your significance to God? Well, consider these facts:
If you were the only living person on earth, God would have sent his son to die for you in order that you could have eternal life.
Are you are significant?
I encourage you to start reading the Bible daily, not just at church or synagogue.
As Yogi Berra famously said, “You can observe a lot by just watching.”
