The psalmist asked, “What is man that You are mindful of him?” (Psalm 8:4). Yet, mankind is very special to God. The pinnacle of God’s creative work is His creation of human beings. God created both male and female to be more like Him than anything else in all creation.
“Then God Said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth'” (Genesis 1:26–28).
