April 27, 2022 - Psalms 7-10

In Psalm 8, David espouses the majesty and glory of the Lord. He also shows how God has revealed his majesty in the creation of human beings: “What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands” (8:4-6).


Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French mathematician and scientist. He described man: “What a freak, what a monster, what a chaos, what a subject of contradiction, what a marvel! Judge of all things, and imbecile earthworm; possessor of the truth, and sink of uncertainty and error; glory and rubbish of the universe.” On the one hand pretty harsh but on the other, what praise! This is who we are, people created in the image and likeness of God yet fallen and in need of redemption. And thanks be to our God, “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (1:13-14). Fallen but redeemed in Christ. Yeah!


Let all things their Creator bless,

and worship God in humbleness,

alleluia, alleluia!

To God all thanks and praise belong!

Join in the everlasting song:

O sing ye, O sing ye, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! -- St. Francis of Assisi (1225)
