God's choice

God is the same yesterday, today and eternally. Without him, our existence would have no meaning. When God decided to manifest his perfection, he chose to create man in the shape of an earthen vessel to give the light of the knowledge of his glory (cf. 2 Corinthians 4:6). God had no need to express his existence by creating an imperfect world and a man who languishes to be perfect. God acts by free choice, without particular reason. That is why the Scriptures never recall for what “reason” God created the world, but for what “purpose”.

Greatness and suffering

Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)

No matter our task

Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who built it. (Psalms 127)
The Lord will never build our house, if we do not labor at all. Moreover, if we do not invite him in our work, our efforts will be vain; the house will lack solidity and will collapse when the rain, the torrents and the winds of life burst against it. Our first concern must be to invite the Lord to join us and help us in whatever we do.
