Psalm 144:3 says this:
Lord, what is man that You take notice of him? Or [the] son of man that You take account of him?
What is the answer to that question? What IS mankind to the One, True God? Look at these verses:
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth. KJV
Psalm 8:4 What is man, that You are mindful of him? and the son of man, that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honour. 6 You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas. 9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth! KJV
Shalom in Him!
