Time: Creation, Day 6
Place: Heaven, looking down at Earth
Participants: God, One Inquisitive Angel
Angel to God: “What are you doing, God?”
God: “Creating a man.”
Angel: “What are you going to do with him?
God: “Love him.”
Angel: “What will he do for you?”
God: “Give me pleasure.”
Angel: “Will he give you pleasure that is different from what the rest of your creation gives you?”
God: “Oh, yes. He will be a speaking spirit just like me, who will have the ability to choose by his own free will to love me and communicate with me constantly.”
Angel: “Have you thought that he might use his free will to choose not to love you? He could end up giving you a lot of trouble.”
God: “Oh yes, he will give me a lot of trouble. But he is worth it!”
Oh, that we would see ourselves as God sees us!
