The Bible starts off with an overview of the main characters and their natural tendencies. God, the loving creator, seeks to spend a perfect eternity with his creation. Mankind drifts toward its own decisions outside of God, and ultimately into wickedness. The rest of the story will tell of the path to reconciliation. In the meantime, we have the choice every day to trust God's plan and provision for our lives, or if we think we can do a better job ourselves.
