The Feast of the Holy Trinity Year A - Psalm 8

Psalm 8
The God of majesty and might, who flung the stars and moon into the sky and with infinite imagination created all creatures great and small is mindful of mortals. It’s a good thing because the crown of creation has chaffed at being a “little lower than God” and desiring more glory and honor has generally made a mess of things. But being mindful of us does not mean keeping an eye on humanity as if the majestic name needed to watch us to keep us in line. It means that we occupy a place of affection and as such are always on God’s mind and in God’s heart. On the other hand the “works of God’s hands” could use a little relief from human domination and I imagine a good bit of creation “under our feet” wishes we would walk a little more softly. Maybe we should be more mindful of things created a little lower than us in the same way God thinks of things created a little lower than God.
