What is Mankind?

7a3cd-bookmark252b3

The Moon orbits Earth at a tremendous speed.

Traveling constantly at 2,288 miles per hour, always in its track, never coming too close to Earth, never venturing too far away.

Perfectly placed by its Creator, suspended in space by His constant power.

Here we are on Earth, each of us going about our daily lives.

Compared to all the wonders in the heavens, we seem small in comparison.

Yet, God is mindful of us.

Every part of our who we are.

He cares for us with a love that is greater than we can understand.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
 Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
 When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

—-Psalm 8:1-4
