What is Man?
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
Have you noticed that there are really good questions in the Bible? And these are not light-weight musings.
Psalm 8 has a terrific one, “What is man that you [God] are mindful of him…?” Thank about that! We are told that humans are a little lower than the angels. We are spiritual/material beings living in a material/spiritual world; we are not like any other part of creation. Yet, most of the people around you today live only in a material world with little or no realization of God’s being mindful of them. But God is interested specifically in every person He has made!
What is there about man that holds God’s interest? Why does God care? God has crowned us with glory and honor and Genesis tells us that God liked what He made.
Is there a person around you today who might need to hear that God made them and likes them? They are not a mistake.
