Have you ever wondered if God is affected by what we do?
Think about God for a minute. He is the creator; He not only made you and I, but He crafted the elements that you and I are made from. He made this planet, the oceans, the mountains, and the sky. He created the moon, the other planets, the sun, the stars, the solar systems, the galaxies, and the super-clusters of galaxies!
Is this God affected in any way by what you and I do?
If you read the Bible, the answer is a resounding, “Yes! He is affected!” And in fact, if you believe the Bible, He is affected deeply. When I consider this, my thoughts echo David’s in Psalm 8:4 (NRSV) 4 what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?
But He does care.
What we do and what happens to us is known by God, and that knowledge touches God’s heart and draws Him to respond according to His character.
