(Thomas Watson, "Body
Did God make our bodies out of the dust, and that
dust out of nothing? Let this keep down pride! When
God would humble Adam, He uses this expression,
"You were made from dust." Why are you proud,
O dust and ashes?
David says, "I praise You because I am fearfully
wonderfully made." Your being wonderfully
make you thankful; your being
made from the dust—should
keep you humble.
If you have beauty, it is but well-colored
"For you were made from dust, and to the dust
you will return." Genesis 3:19
