Transit of mortals

When I look at the sky…what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? Ps. 8:3a, 4

Today the transit of Venus is visible to much of the world. This event makes it easier for scientists to gain perspective about sizes and distances in space. We should stop and measure when events occur that help us gain perspective about the relative size of our ambitions and our worries compared to God.

Lord, I am so much better off when I remember how much bigger You are than me.
