Morning by Morning

Getting to see two sunrises recently has only solidified in my mind the benefit and blessing of being an early riser—each one called to mind an eloquent passage from God’s Word, Psalm 8.
Psalm 8

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have set Your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants You have ordained praise because of Your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is mankind that You are mindful of them, human beings that You care for them? You made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of Your hands; You put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!

“The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, pain and hunger.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
