A Thought for Today July 13, 2018

“What is Mankind?”
 
This is an interesting question.
Being part of mankind, we feel mankind is important.
 
However, our importance soon withers as we compare ourselves to the Lord God.
 
The psalmist realized this.
I pray that as you face this brand new day, you will agree with his Holy Spirit inspired words.
 
Please read the following verses.
 
Psalms 8
For the director of music.
According to gittith. A psalm of David.
 
1 O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.
2 From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
 
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
 
5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
7 all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
 
9 O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
