The power of paradox

I’ve been thinking about paradoxes lately, and how wonderful they are. When you are confronted with two seemingly contradictory ideas, it really helps you to think deeply about the issues and understand the subtleties, complexities and beauty of the problem space you’re delving into. One of my favourite ‘paradoxes’ is in Psalm 8:

“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?”

Humanity – so small and insignificant, yet so valued and significant at the same time.
