“What’s been on my mind Today?-My new Series.
Every day we hear ,listen,read, see and think -we get fed by thoughts, ideas, worldviews, beliefs,unbelief ,assertions,theories …. whether aware or not!
This series is about those Random/Intended thoughts – mine and those I hear/read along the day!
They are raw impulsive musings – especially mine- sometimes only making sense in my context ! The wording is often weak! Most are -spontaneous reflections in their ‘embryonic’ form that will eventually get their own post once they reach full term!
SO,What’s been on my mind Today ?
[May 2 Wed]
Ok done Genesis 3 verse 5-
Written! published! Done! Wouch!! , this is hard work! Not sure why I keep doing it but I feel compelled by the Holy Spirit to keep at it…….a faith no sight thingy…once again 🙂
Such a struggle to write the post on Genesis 3-5….hard!!hard!!
People love to quote :’The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion suitable for him”
It makes me cringe whenever I hear that verse used in a context of ‘ ‘Everyone got to be married’ with a tinge of ‘ Even God said that He,Himself was not enough to fulfill man” blabla…
People, you gotta put that verse in context!
ADAM WAS ALONE!!!
There was Him , God and Earth’s inhabitants -Animals!! So of course , ‘it wasn’t good’
God created the Earth with Mankind-Humanity-Worshippers in mind – and that’s usually a bunch of people!
Man was not created to live on its own- Tarzan -like!( Jane eventually sneaked in…)
That’s one of the level of interpretation of the verse! Do Not forget that the next verses says :” Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see………But for Adam no suitable helper /companion was found…..So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; …….’ and created Eve””Genesis 2:19-21
That’s what should be said about that verse! Man was created to be Man’s companion!
Man was not created to walk with cheeta ( etc..) side by side but with God and Man, Love thy God first and your neighbor second- the 2 indissociable!!That’s the order!
Have you noticed Since the first couple , there are people everywhere!!!There are plenty people to walk side by side with ! to be a helper to ! To bond with! To talk to! to share with ! to eat with ! Our kind is everywhere waiting to be snowed under friendly love!
One doesn’t need to be married to be in companionship ( family-friends- neigbhourds- charity work-helping people) can fulfill that need very well !
Just like you can be married and be alone!!
Marriage is one of the greatest intimate relationship that God created (pre-fall anyway)- but it is not the Greatest, if it was ,it would exist in heaven as well……
as it is in heaven -here on earth…hihi…
I am compelled to worship…
