August 6: Wow

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 8:1-9

On this date in 1930, during the Waco Cubs’ 18-run eighth inning, Gene Rye hit three home runs. The Texas League outfielder hit a solo shot, a two-run homer, and a grand slam, driving in 7 runs in a single inning. Wow, what an inning to have as a player!

Psalm 8 is a “Wow” psalm, a psalm of praise and adoration for all God has done and who God is. The psalm begins and ends with the exclamation: “How majestic is your name in all the earth!” In the verses between, the psalmist praised God’s awesome power, excited that God had taken an interest in man and had given him dominion over creation. David said “Wow” because the Creator of the heavens and earth still loves and has time for humankind. Wow, indeed!

  1. As you think about God’s creation, what is a “wow” for you?

  2. What does it mean to you that God has an interest in you?

  3. Why should it be important in light of this psalm to spend time daily with God?

God’s awesomeness is all around us each day. Take some time today to reflect on the Holy Wow!
