Mike's Day 13: Psalm 8

Quick Summary: The name of God is majestic. His Glory is above the Heavens. When I look up and see: Sky, stars, moon, I think "Majestic!" How can we compare to all this? What is it, that you care for us? You made us to have dominion over all this? Unbelievable!

This Psalm speaks about human dignity and human responsibility, surely two attributes which go together, feeding into and giving life to the other. Intertwined with both dignity and responsibility is the glory of YHWH. YHWH, majestic and enthroned above the heavens, ensures both.

As the early Christians read the Psalms, Psalm 8 stood out as being particular in referring to Christ Jesus, the one made a little lower than the angels yet now crowned in glory and honour (see Hebrews 2:6-8 and 1 Cor 15:27).
