Psalm Saturday 8c

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  who hast set thy glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him?  and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalm 8:1-5

“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the starts, which thou hast ordained; What is man that thou art mindful of him?”

That is a good question.  When we look at all of creation, we can see the glory and power of the Lord.  We can look at the beauty of an sunset or look at the millions of stars in the night sky and wonder why the God Who created all of that cares anything about us.

The simple answer to those questions is: I don’t know.  But He is mindful of us.  In fact, He loves us.  Why?  We will never know nor understand.  But He does, and, for that we can be eternally grateful!
