a little lower

28 May

160628O LORD, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,
to silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
mortals that you care for them?
Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
(Psalm 8, NRSV)

think about it for a moment…

God, the creator of the cosmos, made everything around us. All of the things on earth, earth, and all the microscopic things. God also created all of the stars in the heavens, and all of the wonders of space. All of the things we know exist and all the things we have yet to discover.

And with all of those things, God still cares for you.

And made you a little lower than God. We have been given dominion over the earth and all that is on it/in it. We get to be in relations with the creator of everything.

That my friends is a powerful, wonderful gift!
