What would you give for the welfare of your baby? Your growing children? Your children as they give themselves to their own children? I suppose the answer depends upon what value you place on their existence – upon the essence of who they are.
It is easy to look at what God does from a man-at-the-center viewpoint. This common approach views mankind at the epicenter of meaning, with the Creator responding (or reacting) to our human experience.
The Word of God’s view is much more Theocentric, however. Everything begins with God. It is all about Him. Whatever occurs on earth in the brief period time is relevant is completely subjected to what brings Lord God the most honor, glory, and pleasure. This is crystal clear in the pages of the God Story.
Our talk today revolves around why we would make a choice to live in light of a Theocentric world-view. It is our belief that true meaning and peace of heart and mind are rooted here. Enjoy!
