Martin Luther aptly described our sinful nature as “so deeply curved in on itself that it wickedly seeks all things, even God, for its own sake.” While it is vital to appreciate God’s interest in us as individuals, it is also crucial to remember the universe isn’t all about me. God has a big thing going on, and the gospel invites us to be a part of it. This Psalm started out with David speaking about “my soul.” Then he began to speak about “us” and “those who fear” the Lord. Now at the end of the Psalm, he broadens his horizon to embrace the angels and all of God’s creatorial works. Get out of yourself and join in with nature’s song!
