God Created His People (Psalm 8)

God created his people. 

In my life one of the biggest things that I’ve struggled with is judgment. When I’m walking down the street I have judged someone on their circumstance, how they look, or what they are doing. The world has influenced this idea of you can do whatever you want, you can dress how you want, act how you want, say what you want, you can be whatever you wanna be. As a christian it is hard not to judge a fallen world surrounded by non-believers. However just because they don’t believe in Jesus does not mean we can judge them, in fact Jesus teaches us to love them.

The idea for this blog came to me when I was searching for the answer to the prayer of “God I want to be able to talk to a woman without any lust no matter how she looks.” I saw this prayer when I was searching online and the answer is found in Psalms 8 which reads,

3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—

    the moon and the stars you set in place—

4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them,

    human beings that you should care for them?

5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God

    and crowned them with glory and honor.

6 You gave them charge of everything you made,

    putting all things under their authority—

7 the flocks and the herds

    and all the wild animals,

8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,

    and everything that swims the ocean currents.

9 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

After I read Psalms I was given this revelation that all this time I had been degrading God's creation. See God created man and woman with such glory and honor and he gave us everything he made so we could rule over it. Genesis says we are made in His image. Every single one of us was created by God, knit together perfectly in our mother womb. After reading this my prayer changed to “God I want to see women the way that you see them.” Because all that time I had reduced God’s glorious creation to just a slab of meat.

This is true not just for my situation but for the sin of judging someone. What if instead of judging people and degrading them we realize that they are God’s creation. They are sinners just like us, no greater or worse than we are. So instead of judging them, Love them. Spread the Gospel with them, get to know them.
