Today I was reading in Psalm 8 and struck not only by the awesome position God has place us (humanity) in, making us “a little lower than the heavenly beings,” but also the awesome responsibility he has given us. In the beginning, God appointed Adam as a vice regent over creation – to work and to keep it. This responsibility of exercising dominion over creation extends to us – “you have given us dominion over the works of your hands.” This rule is to be exercised with great care – it is the work of God’s hands we are stewarding, and it is to be patterned after God’s care for his world! That is an awesome responsibility. DW
