King David has some great insight into God’s goal for us.
- God is God and God made this world. This isn’t our world, it is God’s. Everything starts with God.
- God put us in charge of the world he has created. We don’t automatically “inherit” things. It is God’s gift to us. It is my job to be responsible.
- Our job is to act on God’s goal for us. God has a plan for us. I must follow up on what God wants me to do.
“You put us in charge of your handcrafted world,
repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
Made us lords of sheep and cattle,
even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming,
whales singing in the ocean deeps.” ~King David
