My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.
~ Luke 1.46-48
Zion National Park is an impressive sight. Huge cliffs spring up around a roaring river. The scale of the scenery can feel overwhelming, even scary, at times. And yet, even in Zion, little things matter.
Angel’s Landing is a well-known hike in Zion. The trail climbs 1,500 feet in just over two miles, culminating in a dizzying perch that looks as if only an angel could land there. Ultimately, I turned back at the top – it was simply too scary for me to continue. But I still remember this pool, an enchanting spot that we hiked by on the way up and down.
A lowly pool remains precious to me. A frightening scramble on high rock – not so much.
REFLECT: Magnifying means making something bigger. How can you magnify a picture? How can you magnify a worm? How can you magnify love? How can you magnify kindness?
