When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
I love this passage of scripture. It speaks volumes to me. The vastness of the heavens directs my thinking to just how limitless is our God who created them. Who is mankind in the midst of the universe? Well, it turns out that we’re quite important to our creator. Mankind is the focus of creation to the point that he sent his only begotten Son to die for us. I pause to think about this, and I am overwhelmed by this thought.
The great creator -of all that we know- is loving, personal, and sacrificial in relationship with his created ones. I desire to take this into the depths of my soul. Sometimes, I ignore God and take for granted his presence in my life. These thoughts are important motivators to stir me from my complacent self- centeredness and remind me just who I am serving. He is the creator of the universe in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
