One Thousand Gifts (con't)

1 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:7 all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

This was the Bible passage that was read last night at our special Friendship service. Our pastor reminded us how valuable we are in God's eyes and how loved we are. He made us "a little lower than the heavenly beings". We can be truly in awe of the amazing universe that God has made, but he loves us more than anything that He has made! That is something to be in awe of! I give thanks for ...
