For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How many of us would call ourselves the pinnacle of anything. Well, human beings are the pinnacle of the created order. We are 'fearfully and wonderfully made.' How amazing is that?
That is a an astonishing thought which brings with it a real responsibility to be good stewards of the earth. Fortunately we are offered a comforting thought in the psalm as well; namely, that God knew us even before we were born. That is a gift to us that reminds us of God's love and care. God's saw us even before we existed!
May we find a real sense of our value to you.
May we know that you have great regard for us.
May we live under your love and care.
