Good... But Undeveloped

The word ‘subdue’ indicates that, though all God made was good, it was still to a great degree undeveloped.
— Timothy Keller

Development is what God had in mind for us to do with part of our time here on earth. We are to partner with Him in divine creativity to develop a world that, although good, is still in need of our stewardship. 

And we need development too. Even if Adam & Eve hadn’t fallen, development of body, mind and heart would still have been an unavoidable part of their lives.

We are not just humans being, we are also humans becoming. Development is not a season, it’s a lifestyle.
