Thought for Sunday 17th October

Psalm 8:5

“You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honour.”

The first part of his answer lies in the “created order.” As the psalmist has carefully structured his psalm, so we have a place in an order that God himself has created. Order - the result of God’s creative power over the chaos that previously existed - is always crucial in Scripture and chaos is evil.   

Reflection: Note that in this psalm humans do not act - only God does that, making us, crowning us, and caring for us.
