O LORD, what is man that you care for him,
The son of man that you think of him?
A fair question.
Why does God care about us? I know that theologians can (and have) gone on and on about this but the answer is simply that He loves us. I wish I could state it more eloquently. I wish I had the beautifully poetic words that would make the notion of such a love come to life for you. But, honestly, there is no need to complicate things. God is love and He loves his creation.
That’s it – a pure simple truth.
Man is like a breath
His days are like a fleeting shadow
Compared to God’s greatness, we are nothing
He loves us anyway
Our time on earth is momentary
He notices us anyway
Our foolish waywardness has to be frustrating
He shows us a true Way
Our speeches and written words (like this) must be entertaining
He listens anyway
And responds by pointing us to the Word – His Son
Why does He care?
He simply does.
