Adam and Eve never wondered why they were created.
They never wondered who was to be central in their thoughts and hearts.
They never searched for something that could give life meaning.
And they never asked what life was all about.
They were instinctively hardwired with the knowledge that God IS the supreme Creator. They adored Him and wanted to bring bring Him glory. They knew His “worth.” (worthy)
Their whole life centered around the Good One, and nothing else mattered. The Supreme one took care of the details, because He was sovereign. They enjoyed Him. Life was simple and fulfilling.
It was only when sin entered the world that they forgot about glorifying God and His supremacy.
And we forget too, when we live our lives as though God and His word doesn’t matter. We fail to bring God glory when we live like we are central and He is peripheral.
One question should always be on the front of our minds: Will this bring God glory? Will it show the world His worth?
Parenting can be made so much easier when we stop asking “Is it okay (lawful) for my kids to do ___________?” or “I’ll let my kids do X, buy Y is crossing the line, so we stop there” as though every choice is based on whether it crosses
Instead of taking our cues from the world around us (worldliness) as Christians we should be asking other questions:
Will this action/activity show that God is FIRST in our hearts and affections? Does it reflect the fact that God is supreme in our lives?
Am I acting in a way that brings God glory?
