Destined for Redemption

Genesis 2:16-17
The Lord God gave man this order: “You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden except the tree of knowledge of good and bad. From that tree you shall not eat; the moment you eat from it you are surely doomed to die.”

God is our source of life and happiness. God is the only determiner of what is “good” and what is “bad.” We are asked to love everyone…as God does. The moment we start dividing…separating…deciding who is “good” and who is “bad”…we have decided we know better than God. God can use all things for good. God accepts all things without dividing. It’s the kind of love that transformed Saul into St. Paul. Our darkest defeats and failures are the very places where we can experience God’s unconditional love. It’s a love that transforms us. Loving God, help me to love like You.
