The Majesty of God
What gives a human value? Psalm 8 teaches us this answer by taking our eyes off of ourselves and turning them to the majesty of God. When we see the majesty and mindfulness of God, we begin to understand our worth as humans.
The Pursuit of Happiness
This psalm sets in contrast two ways to live. One way is for the blessed, or happy who finds themselves rooted and fruitful. The other is for the wicked, who find themselves tossed about with no foundation. A happy life is built by choice and patience, in light of eternity.
