Devo of the Week: Psalm 8:4

“What are human beings that you are mindful of them…?” Some would say the God revealed in the Old Testament is simply about judgment and fury.  The Psalmist says God is “mindful of humans and cares for them.” Unlike the portrayal of many ancient gods, the Biblical God is one that values humans.  He created a world good for their thriving and cares for them even when they reject him.  What does it mean to you that God is mindful and cares for people and for you?  Lord God, help us to see you as you really are.
