God’s Design

2 He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created. Genesis 5:2

Once again, God reiterated the plan for marriage: one man and one woman. With their union they would be able to procreate or as was the verbiage in Genesis 1:28 to multiply. Thousands of years later we find ourselves at the tail end of the sexual revolution where anything goes. That certainly wasn’t by God’s design nor was it His intention. Unfortunately we’re also reaping the harvest of those sins: disease, dissatisfaction with normal relations, and a militant opposition to the truth.

Where is this all going and what are we to do about it? I’m afraid that unless the Lord intervenes, it doesn’t look pretty for this society. Still, we are to pray for those who are more easily influenced by its teaching: the little ones. The societal norms we’re leaving them are opposed to the truth. They need to be protected from much of their teaching in the classroom, in their music, and on TV. Admittedly, it is an uphill battle, but we do have a God who wants desperately to draw others to Himself.

Do what we can but leave the worrying in God’s hands. It’s best that way.
