"When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars which Thou hast ordained: What is man that Thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that Thou visitest him?"—Psalm 8:3, 4
In the second of these verses the writer enunciates the first great problem of every human life, and it is a problem which encompasses all others. The old philosophers and teachers summed up their philosophy and teaching in that one phrase, "Man, know thyself." And if man can but know himself, there will be no problem that he has not solved. When man truly knows himself, and has unravelled the mysteries of his own existence, and fathomed all the deeps of his own being, then, surely, he will also have discovered God, the Creator and Sustainer.
