Dr. Scripture was asked the question, "What is a 'nephesh' creature," and although the word "nephesh" is a commonly occurring term in the Old Testament, and is associated with the life forms God created on days 5 and 6 of creation, he needed to study the term more thoroughly.
In this 3rd program considering Psalm 8, a prayer/song directed to the Creator/Lord, we consider the dramatic difference between the response of a humble heart like David's to the majesty of the One who created him, and that of the arrogant, self reliant and rebellious heart of the unregenerate man. The famous poem written in 1875, "Invictus" by William E Henley, serves as a powerful example of the rebellious human spirit.
As David praises his Creator he is humbled by the fact that such an awesome God has even a thought about him let alone CARES for him. It's an interesting question to ponder--how does a person respond to the Almighty when confronted with His display of power in the heavens? Humbly as did David or defiantly as did the author of the famous poem, Invictus.
