Memorable Scripture: What is man? Who am I?

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. Psalms 8:3-5

When you consider what David considered you will stand in awe of His majesty.
I live in the pineywoods of East Texas. Light pollution is very light and the stars of the heavens really are spectacular, especially when a cold front moves through the area lowering the humidity and clearing the sky.
I often stand out in front of my house on such a night and just stare up.
I see stars beyond stars. I see the moon and the planets. Sometimes a comet pays a visit to our solar system and I consider it all and how insignificantly small I am.
Who am I? Yet, God is mindful of me.
Jesus came in the image of someone like me to provide for me.

The writer of Hebrews put it this way: For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels. But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You take care of him? You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”
For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. Heb 2:5-9

Thank you, Lord, for thinking of me!
