In Genesis 1 we read that God looked at His creation and pronounced it very good. This is our world that He is talking about. I wonder what He thinks about it today with global warming and wars, fires and fighting, corruption and chaos. To hear the news is depressing and frightening. On our own we just cannot be trusted to run the world successfully.
Greed and gluttony are the order of the day while poverty and persecution reign. In our running of this world we are proving our ineptitude.; we are too proud to be any good at it.
‘Return to the Lord’. As individuals we can feel so powerless. We may not be able to influence governments or be able to change laws. They is only one thing we can do. We can prayer. God can use others so together we can influence matters under His guidance and the world can return to the praise of God.
