"'When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him?' asked the psalmist.
An excellent question, as well as a reminder to a point of view I easily forget. We are, we humans, a mere pinch of dust scattered across the surface of a nondescript planet. At the heart of all reality is God, an unimaginable source of both power and love. In the face of such reality we can grovel in humanoid humility or we can, like the psalmist, look up instead of down, to conclude,
'O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth!' "

Philip Yancey, Prayer
