Starlit Contemplations

Old Testament Reference~Psalm 8:3-4

How many times have you looked at the peaceful sky on a clear and bright, starry night and thought about God? God made all those many individual beacons of light. The vastness of the universe is hard to comprehend.

Now imagine looking at the stars and talking about them with David. Think of the setting. Probably around a fire. Maybe he had a handheld harp to strum. The peace of God is all around and is comforting. God said David was a man after His own heart. He was a shepherd to sheep in his youth and then he became the king to God’s people. We contemplate together why God made the stars. 

David is credited with writing Psalm 8. Verses 3 and 4 make me wonder why God is so mindful of humans.  Why does He desire us to spend time with Him? Why did He send His only son, Jesus, who never did wrong, to cover for all the wrongdoing we do.
