It reminds us that we are small. So small. And that we need more.
It reminds us that God is so much more than our definitions of him. Should we stop trying to contain him? Surely that's not the only answer. We must never stop trying to stretch our little limited human understandings beyond what we can see. That we might use our words as oxygen tasks and our theology as wetsuits to push us deep into God's heart - all the while knowing we can never really know what's at the bottom.
As we peer upon the wonder from the beach, may we soak in not only how small we are and how magnificently big God is, but also the sheer wonder and beauty and grace that God knows us. He knows me. He knows you. He knows.
