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?
– Psalm 8:3-4 (NLT)
One way to feel small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things is to get a really good look at the night sky. On a clear night free of clouds and city lights, the true majesty of the heavens is a wondrous sight to see. When you realize how tiny our little planet is in the cosmos, then you start to consider how small you are.
The greater wonder is that God cares for us. He created us, came to earth as one of us, and died for us.
Here on earth, this tiny planet in the corner of one galaxy, the entire drama of good versus evil is played out. God made people in His image, we fell from grace, and each person meets the challenges of life and faces His judgment after, with the key question of whether or not they accepted the covenant Jesus offers.
