My Musings – Carl Sagan wrote, “There is nothing unusual about the earth. It’s an average, unassuming rock that’s spinning mindlessly around an unremarkable star in a run-of-the-mill galaxy – ‘a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.'” Yet on this “unassuming rock” in this “great enveloping cosmic dark” God placed the crown-jewel of His creation – Man. We know (Carl Sagan notwithstanding) this, because of all His creation only man was made in His image.
All of the other “work[s] of [His] fingers” are beyond our comprehension, because our finite minds cannot comprehend the infinite. And yet “these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?” (Job 26:14, NIV 1984). Who indeed? Incomprehensible to us, yet still “how faint the whisper we hear of Him!” The infinite is still merely the “outer fringe of His works.” Try and wrap your head around that!
Which brings us back to the Psalm above, which is attributed to King David. In the midst of all that has just been so inadequately described, “what is man that [He] is mindful (Attentive; regarding with care; bearing in mind; heedful; observant) of Him?” That my friend, is a mind full indeed!
My Advice – “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” (Revelation 7:12, NIV 1984).
