5 Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!” 6 And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith. Genesis 15:5-6
I was reminded of this scripture today by a story I read in the news about how scientists now think they were a tiny bit off on their last “count” of the stars. They now think there may be about THREE TIMES as many stars as they last estimated. Small mistake…I’m sure they have the correct “count” now. :-)
Over four thousand years later, Abram’s descendants make up a nation…and our brightest minds are still trying to count the stars.
