And He made the stars also

“Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.” Genesis 1:16 (NKJV)

I wonder why God made the stars in the sky, from the very sight if I would try to derive the purpose for their making, I could only conclude as ‘To shine brightly’.

The dictionary meaning of ‘star’ is - a fixed luminous point in the night sky which is a large, remote incandescent body like the sun.

The Bible also categorizes a group of people as stars who are those…

Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12:3 (NKJV)

God classifies them who win souls as stars, for they have shined for His glory, they have endeavored to bring back many who were lost, they have pulled off many from the fiery flames of hell, and they truly deserve to be stars.
However the world classifies ‘stars’ and ‘megastars’ them who probably have accomplished awesome worldly things, it could be having acted in a very famous movie, or any other higher achievements.

The worldly interpretation and Godly interpretation is as usual contradictory wherein the stars as defined by God really do shine, the world stars can be seen waving hands to many for few days until they lose their shine and fall down in self destruction, they are not thus truly stars.

Many are influenced by the worldly stars and desire to be like them, however they should also know that their end also will be like them, and utter destruction.

Those who really shine for God will shine forever, they will truly be a blessing to others, they will surely have eternal contentment, and they will surely have unending peace.

God also created the stars, only to shine for Him and that’s the real purpose of the ‘stars’.

May God help us to shine for Him.

God Bless,
Abraham
