Reading Through the Bible: Day 2
Day 2 finds us in Psalms 8 and 104 primarily.  I love what the Psalmist writes in Psalm 8:3-4:

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
When we gaze up at the stars on a clear night, stand at the edge of the ocean and look to horizon, or see majesty of a mountain ranges glimpsed from afar, we should be reminded of the majesty of Him who created all that we see.  How wondrous and mighty is our God!

The only response to the majesty of God is to then recognize or own smallness in the face of such glory.  How incredible is it then that our majestic God loves and cares for such insignificant creatures as us?  The mercy, love, and grace of God become all that they are designed to be when we see God and ourselves for who he and we really are.

How have you been reminded of God's majesty or your smallness today?

I married my beautiful bride Katherine back in May of 1998. Since then, we have been blessed with 4 wonderful kids (three girls and a boy). We have lived here in Rome since 1993 when Katherine and I met as freshmen at Berry College. I teach Math and Science at one of the elementary schools here in town. Thanks for stopping by.
