Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the three-year lectionary.
On Trinity Sunday our focus is on the almighty triune God. This one God, eternally existing in the three persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, of one essence, is frankly beyond our comprehension. Plato considered that the actual deity who is over all would only think about what was perfect. Therefore he would only think about himself. However, in Psalm 8:1-9, we find that God has considered his creation. He gives authority and dominion even to humans, allowing part of the creation to govern.
It is, in fact, to the glory of God that he has given dominion to humans. The pagan deities are all threatened when someone else operates in a place of authority. The triune God, though, is quite self-confident enough that he will allow his people to work as his representatives.
How does he accomplish anything? He does it by having humans, who are created according to his will, carry on their works in his name and by his authority. May we have wisdom to act according to his grace, showing love and care for all his creation.
