Creation – Behind the Scenes: A One-Act Play

 

Time: Creation, Day 6

Place: Heaven, looking down at Earth

Cast: God, One Inquisitive Angel

 

Conversation:

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!)
