QT – Psalm 8

Vs. 1, “O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Here we have young David who is glorifying God! Why? Because many scholars believe this was soon after young David’s defeat of Goliath. David seeks to give God all the credit! What a refreshing thing to see when so many of us tend to pat ourselves on the back when we accomplish things.

Regarding application…We Are Important to God. Vs. 4, “what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” We are made in His image and God has a incredible plan laid out for each and everyone of us. Why would God pay attention to a shepherd boy? Why would God pay attention to you or I? Because we are important to God, so much so that Jesus came to die for us. We were bought at a price that is beyond belief.  The first car I bought was a 1976 For Gran Torino for the whopping price of $900.  That was a huge price back then for a teenager and I completely valued that car!  Actually, I wish I still had it…it was a classic car!  I bought it, it was mine and it helped me accomplish my daily tasks.  Likewise, God bought us and we also help Him accomplish His daily goals in this world we live in!
