In the beginning God intended for his people to live in a creation that he had made, and to love and take care of it. He wanted his people that he created to love him and be obedient to his plan for civilization in regards to how much he loves us. His will was for us to trust him and live in peace, in the creation that he had made for us to have dominion of. The thing is we could not identify with what God was doing for us even when the human race was in the beginning as we saw them in the garden of Eden.
So if we could not have a good relationship with God who did all of this for us. Then how do we expect to have good human relationships with one another if we could not love what God had done for us and visited us in the garden. That is why I think the people of the world will never change because they were disobedient in the beginning of time and it shows everyday. The fact that people are not happy with what God has done for them leads them to make strange choice’s that can hurt them.
Let’s take the time to look at Samuel and the people of Israel when they wanted to be like other nations and requested a king. That just let’s us know we our never content with what God is doing and on top of that we look at people for how they look on the outside and that’s why they chose Saul. He looked good on the outside but he did not have a heart for the people and he disobeyed God and that is what lead to him being rejected. What God look’s for is the heart of man and that is why he choose David because he knew how to repent and he cared for people and loved God.
That does not mean our children will walk in our way’s and that is what caused Solomon to turn from God and build alters to other god’s and be lead astray by his wives. The Bible can teach us many things about wisdom but we must take note of this concerning diligence and laziness. We have been told certain things by God through his word and they all help us navigate through this life and wisdom teaches us to take the path of being wise in every situation that we come across and to do it with diligence.
The bible says in “Proverbs 1: 5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels. ” So let us not walk in foolishness and seek God’s wisdom in everything that we do because it says this as well about a fool in “ Proverbs 1: 22 How long ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge. So let us chose wisdom and not folly and trust God.
The times that we live in are changing everyday and the people except wrong as right and I know that God and the prophets are not pleased. We must understand that God is the same and his word says in “ Malachi 3: 6 For I am the lord, I change not not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. That lets us know that God will deal with these things the same way he did back then. Just because times have changed God has not and the prophets would advise us to choose life and not death and turn from these things such as idolatry, social injustice, and religious ritualism.
The prophets of old would remind us of God’s word when they tell us in his word what “ Jeremiah said in 2:4 hear ye the word of the Lord, o house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel. So let us listen for God is speaking in the signs of the times because we our a wicked people who have forgotten about God and the message his prophets came bringing to get us on the right course for a better life. So with that being said we can take these teachings and apply them to everyday life and be made new in our mind set and change the whole world in the process and live for God.
