Psalm Saturday 8f

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.  Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever  passeth through the paths of the seas.  O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Psalm 8:1-9

When we look around at just how wonderful God made everything, we have to be amazed at the fact that He put us (man) over it all.  When we look at just how stupid we (people) can be, we have to be even more amazed at this fact.

For whatever reason, God gave man dominion over the works of His hands.  All of the land and the animals and the birds and the fish – all of them have been put under our dominion.  We have been given the earth and should be wise stewards with its resources.  I’m not saying that we should all become environmentalists, because we do not worship the creature over the creator.  But we should be mindful of what God has given us and of how we should treat it and use it.
