Often we are told that we humans have a grotesquely inflated sense of our importance. We are reminded that our planet is but a tiny speck of dust within a vast universe of stars and galaxies which present us with sizes and distances beyond our ability even to imagine. Is it really believable that the Lord of all the Cosmos should be personally concerned with such microscopic creatures as ourselves, floating as we are within the immense, dark oceans of space? The author of Psalm 8 wonders about this too, and yet he recognizes that our smallness is only half of the story. What does he know that we don't?
