God made everything good. Indeed, with man and woman standing at the center of God's world, we can agree with the statement of Genesis 1:31, "Behold, it was very good." The world should have stayed this way. Had Adam and Eve obediently followed God's commands they would have multiplied on the earth, spreading God's rule across the land and living in loving relationships, all to the glory of God himself. They would have had access to the tree of life and eventually been able to join God in his rest. The whole world would have been the better for it.
