What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
The author of this psalm was David, who liked to psalms of praise to God. When David saw the moon and stars in the sky, he was amazed of God’s creation and was especially touched by how much God valued humankind. God provided humankind honor and glory, even giving humankind the important job of managing all creatures on earth. We must wholeheartedly praise God!

We can be like David and use our understanding of God to praise Him. God favors our praise and our praise allows us to get closer to God. What do you want to praise Him for? We can also start a new habit of praising each other in our families. What would you praise your family members for?
Dear Heavenly Father, I will praise you because you are a loving God! A powerful healing God! When there is sickness and suffering in the world, please protect my family and me and keep us peaceful and healthy. Please heal and rescue those who are sick and suffering. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!
