God’s Greatness

When I was young, my family would sit outside on clear nights. We would look at the stars and the moon. We talked about God’s greatness.
Several years later, in 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon. The astronauts left a disc on the moon. This disc has a message on it. Part of the message is the verses from Psalm 8.
Psalm 8 was written a long time ago. The writer of this psalm must have looked at the stars and the moon like I did when I was a child. Verse 3 says, “I look at the heavens you made with your hands. I see the moon and the stars you created.” This writer was amazed that God cared about people and that He put them in charge of creation. “But you made them [people] like gods and crowned them with glory and honor. You put them in charge of everything you made” (verses 5-6a).
Take some time soon and look up at the night sky. Worship God and think about His greatness.
