Ingredients

Unknown-1

“…then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” ~ Genesis 2.7, NRSV

We all have the same ingredients: dust and breath.  And in the end, when we are out of breath, we shall return to the dirt.  The breath that we breathe is given to us and the dust that we are must be returned.  Despite our labels, there is no superior dust or inferior breath.  We all have the same ingredients.
