Reblog: Alicia Jo Rabins: In The Beginning: God As A New Parent

So, maybe the God we read about this week loves us and is terrified for us. Created us but can’t control us.

Maybe this God watches our every move like we watch our babies, wishing it were possible to protect us from pain, knowing we have to make our own mistakes.

Maybe that’s the reason God puts a tree right in the middle of their garden and tells Eve not to eat from it. Maybe that’s why there are consequences when they do eat from it.

Maybe that’s why there is so much sadness among the joy. Creation is a beginning, but also an ending.
