Ash Wednesday – Hebrews 10:24 – Dust Gathers

Dust Gathers…

Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds. (CEB)

Dust gathers.

There is no doubt about it.

It gathers high and low, on small spaces and large spaces.

It is not noticeable alone.

It takes many pieces of dust to be seen.

This does not diminish the unnoticed piece.


For each piece of dust makes a difference.

Each piece of dust makes a difference to the other dust it encounters.

Does the dust bless or curse?

Today, sit with this idea of the impact you make on the world as a piece of dust.  Where do you bless?  Where do you curse?  How does God want to transform you into God’s agent of blessing?

I am grateful to all those who I encounter today as agents of blessing.  I pray that I may live beyond myself and be a blessing to others.

(c) 2019 Rev. Dr. Lil Smith
