I have always been envious of David and his relationship with God. David and God walked together day by day through the good and the not-so-good parts of life. David, like us, is far from perfect, but God who is holy and perfect continues the relationship with him and us in spite of our flaws.

In Psalm 8:4, David asks a good question, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” David is looking at the vastness of the universe compared to the smallness of man. Have you ever asked yourself, “God, why do You even bother with man? We do not listen too well to instruction and when we listen, we often don’t act on Your guidance.” We see through the Old Testament and the New Testament that we are rebellious, egotistical creatures.

In Job 7:17, Job asked the same question as David, “What is man, that You should exalt him, That You set Your heart on him?” Both David and Job knew that it didn’t make sense for God to even think about man, but He does. The question is WHY—why work with a broken, fallible people? The best answer still remains in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Love is the answer to why God is mindful of man. He loves us enough that He sent Jesus to pay for our sin if we will only accept Him. The same God that extended love to David and Job extends love to you and me. No matter how broken and flawed you may feel right now, there is a God who loves you deeply. Now is the perfect time to reach out to Him!
