Worth: what is man that You are mindful of him?

fmf logo  This post is part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up!  So, as my favorite 2 year old says crouching low to the ground… ready, set, GO!

Worth.  As soon as I read this word, my mind searches back to a psalm I recently pondered.  Yes, Psalm 8 – O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!  And there it is…one of the verses…  What is man that You are mindful of him?Winter at FB 2015

This psalm reminds us of the majesty of our God; He is the Creator of the stars, the moon, the sun – all the works of His fingers.  Truly all of Creation is the work of His Majestic imagination!  And yet, the psalmist asks a great question…  What is man that You are mindful of him?

The answer:  We are His creation.  Genesis 1 and 2 – we are created in God’s image.  And because He created each one of us according to His divine imagination and because of His desire to create community for fellowship with His creation – we have WORTH.  Every person, psalm 139, YOU – fearfully and wonderfully made, knit together in your mother’s womb – uniquely designed, purposely crafted on purpose in the image of God for a purpose to be fulfilled through your unique life.Besserat and children

God created you.  God created me.  And because we are made in His image, we have WORTH!
