Text: Psalm 7-9
Psalm 8 is a hymn of praise. In it, God is praised and also the special position of humanity is highlighted:
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet. (Psalm 8:5-6)
The majesty of God can be seen in the glories of creation. Things like the sun, moon and stars, mountains, plants and animals all exhibit God’s greatness. But the apex of God’s creation is humanity – you and me. Made in His image, we have been crowned with glory and honor. And He has given us authority to exercise dominion over the earth. What a wonderful (and undeserved) privilege we have. May we use our regal powers wisely. May our lives reflect the glory and honor which He has granted to us to bear.
in Him, Mike
