3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established;
4 what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
mortals[a] that you care for them?
5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God,[b]
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
7 all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
Lord who are we to be worthy of your love? You have given us so much and I weep to see what we have done with it. We have not cared for the earth or its beauty. It is time for us to take responsibility for our selfishness and turn things around.
Loving God, help us to be worthy of your love. AMEN
