I came to prayer full of distractions and things that are really of no consequence when I stop and think about it.
Psalm 8 returns my focus on this day to what it I am supposed to be thinking about =>The majesty of God and His creation.
I am reminded that I am regarded by God as worthy of His blessings and I need to accept that.
That isn't always as easy as it might sound.
I am also reminded that if I, who is imperfect, can accept other imperfect human beings, then how much more can God , who is perfect, do?
When I think about all of God's creation I am in awe of the complexity of it all.
This makes me think of the importance of responsibility and the responsibility of importance.
Without responsibility one has nothing to work toward. Without importance responsibility has little value.
This remind me of the story of a little boy who came home from school all excited about his appointment as the clap and cheer guy in the Christmas play.
