What Is Man?

David asks a wonderful and important questions in Psalm 8. We should all ask this question, but few of us do. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

When we see unevenly matched relationships, we sometimes ask, "What does she see in him?"

In Psalm 8:4, David asks God a similar question:
"What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?" 

David was marveling at the glory of the heavens, and it made him wonder why such a magnificent Creator had placed such glory, honor and privilege on mankind. 

Hadn't God created a perfect world ... and mankind messed it up?

Hadn't mankind been mocking and rejecting God's love ever since? 

Why did this marvelous God love sinful mankind? 

David's question was spot on.

Most men shake their fists at God and ask why He doesn't do more.

But David was in shock and awe that the Creator of the moon and stars would love him.

It bears repeating: David's response is the right one. 

Take a moment today to study the sky and ponder David's question.

  2. What does man think of himself that he is not continuously in submissive mindfulness of God Almighty...
