I think we're pretty important down here.

In terms of complexity of this divine expression, living human beings actually represent a greater invention — or maybe a better word is deeper. |
Angels are a much simpler expression of God; angels do not access the degree of difficulty or the range of experience that human beings do. We are God’s masterpiece; we are co-creators in the Universe; we are the means by which God experiences and knows itself.
While we may look up to angels as miraculous or magical beings — higher than we are — they know that our mission is the most important.
Angels are our older siblings, but we are the prodigal children. You must remember that God chose to incarnate as human.
Angels are a limited, earlier prototype of spiritual being. They do not experience anywhere near the complexity of the wisdom gained from living, human incarnation.
No physical senses
No free will
No gender or sexuality
They do not experience the joys or the difficulties of life - they don’t eat, or have sex, or feel emotions. They only have one state or mode of experience - and while it may be bliss, it’s incredibly limited. They do not suffer, but they love, untested.
Angels do not extend the creation of the Universe. They may have it easy, but their task doesn’t approach the significance of man’s role as co-creator of reality.
Life is incredibly complicated and difficult. The masterpiece of humanity - the ascension of the human race - is the masterpiece and triumph of Heaven itself.
