Psalm 8: 3-6
We all aspire to be happy and successful, and have a pleasurable view of ourselves. David wrote Psalm 8 as he was discovering his significance within God's creation. Initially God created man with a significant role, but Adam lost that through sin so everyone since then has struggled to find their identity and worth. If we turn to people to validate us it will never last, but when we turn to Christ, we become children of God, and He then gives us the glory and honor for which we were created.
