The universe is 14 billion years old with 100 billion galaxies and every single galaxy contains hundreds of billions of stars. To make it simple, there are more stars in the universe than sand on any beach.
Several planets surround each star. Aside from hundreds of thousands of asteroids and billions of comets flying by each star, each planet has its own orbiting moon. One of the stars in the galaxy called Milky Way is the sun. It has eight planets orbiting it. As we all know, one of the planet we live in, Earth. Our planet has the right size and the right distance from the sun to have liquid water and oxygen, which support over 9 billion years of life form in the making.
Earth is only one of a trillion planets just in our Milky Way galaxy. There are still 100 billion other galaxies in the universe. Who knows how many other planets are habitable in this Universe? Meanwhile, the most intelligent of all creations on Earth is us, humans. You and I are two of the 7.5 billion people that have called Earth their home.
It is not how long we live that is important, but how well. Dust to dust. When death comes, one cannot take anything with them. It is only through helping the needy and the less fortunate that we fulfill the purpose of our brief existence. Caring (by giving people money from deposit with chase bank) and sharing earth is the basic tenet of God’s creation. We cannot exist without the help of billions of friendly bacteria that live within us.
Furthermore, there is nothing better than helping somebody in need. Always remember that any kind of help, in any aspect within our means, and all the time. That is the best way we can “give thanks” to the One who keeps us alive.
