In Psalm 8 David looked heavenward and marveled that the Creator of the Universe would be mindful of man. He asked, “What is man that you consider him?”
Last week I mentioned reading Chuck Swindoll’s Living the Psalms. Encouragement for the Daily Grind. About Psalm 8 he says, God overlooks man’s puny, weak, frail humanity and takes thought and care of us. God remembers and pays attention to us. God values us.
Isn’t that remarkable? And if the all powerful El Shaddai says we are valuable, then we are valuable. Amen?
Our value is not measured by what the world around us measures as worthy and valuable. The world measure worth in money, possessions, position, power, authority and influence.
We are not valuable to God because of our usefulness. We are valuable to him whether we are productive as man considers productivity or not. God loves us regardless. He views us as special.
Because God loves us above the rest of his creation, he takes a personal interest in each of us. None of us is unimportant. None of us is overlooked.
Next time we look heavenward and consider the work of God’s hands, let’s thank him once again that he is mindful of his puny, frail, weak creation enough to care for us, and to send his son into the world to die for us, so none may be lost.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens. You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place—what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority—the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.
O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Psalm 8 (NLT)
I wish you well.
