Don't you realise where you are...?!

Today I was reminded of this passage from the Message version:

Woe to you who turn justice to vinegar
and stomp righteousness into the mud.
Do you realize where you are? You're in a cosmos
star-flung with constellations by God,
A world God wakes up each morning
and puts to bed each night.
God dips water from the ocean
and gives the land a drink.
God, God-revealed, does all this.

Amos 5:7-9

Love this! Just a gentle reminder - do we realise where we are? Half the time it's so easy to just be bogged down in the day to day, but I love getting a fresh reminder of the wonder of God's creation. Love the line about God giving the land a drink.. the land must be particularly thirsty right now ;)
