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

GOD made man in HIS image! Yet He made us with a free will which gives us the ability to sin. WHY? Because He did not want robots, but people who would choose to worship Him of our own will! In Psalm 8:5 the KJV says that He made us to be a little lower than 'angels'. That is NOT the correct word there. This is the Hebrew word "elohiym", which means: the supreme God! HE made US a little lower than HIMSELF! Why did the translators change this? Because they did not know what we now know about God and His Word. They could not understand how that could be. How CAN it be? Because WHEN He made us KNOWING that we would one day sin, He already had the remedy in place to send, in the fullness of time! MESSIAH JESUS Who would give Himself freely for US! He became sin with OUR sin, taking upon HIMSELF the punishment that WE should have had. Now, whosoever will believe this and receive JESUS as Lord and Saviour, becomes a new creation that never existed before (2 Corinthians 5:17)! The Spirit of God recreates our previously dead human spirit into the image of God. PERFECT and without sin. We now become members of God's very own family! LOWER than GOD but HIGHER than ANGELS! While on this earth we still have the nature of the flesh, this flesh and bone body and a soul (mind, emotions and will) that must be renewed daily with God's Word in order to have intimate fellowship with Him. We speak on this earth with HIS authority! THEN, when we are with Him, when we see Him face to face , we will be LIKE HIM (1 John 3:2)! HALLELUJAH!!! So, what is man that God cares for us? WE ARE HIS!!! AMEN! Here is Hillsong UNITED with a new song that I LOVE! "Echoes (Til We See The Other Side)":

Shalom in Him!
