When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—the moon and the stars you set in place— 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them human beings that you should care for them?
Psalm 8:3- 4

Can’t you just picture David, a shepherd boy on the rocky hills of Judea, marveling at the vast night sky? He probably never imagined traveling through space to the moon, but he grasped the enormity of creation when he penned Psalm 8.

When we were kids camping, our parents let us stay up late to watch for falling stars. It was beautiful in rural North Carolina or North Georgia, where there were more bugs than lights. Watching the sky made me feel even smaller than I was.

I still feel small when I look at the night sky, and that’s natural. But feeling small compared to God’s universe doesn’t mean we’re insignificant. The all-powerful God of the universe cares so deeply for us that He made us only slightly lower than the angels and gave us authority over His creation.

David was humbled by this fact. He was in awe, and we should be too. Our God cares more about the inner space of our hearts than outer space. The stars may declare God’s power, but the cross speaks of His love.
