We were created to relate to God and to rule over His creation. This truth seems to elude many people. We will not be able to rule successfully if we are not relating to God. A healthy relationship with Him will ensure that we rule successfully over His creation.
Mankind is dependent on God for absolutely everything and when we accept His way, we become successful. We were created for relationship with God and one another, which enables us to do what we were created to do. Jesus stated that to love is the fulfilling of the whole law and that it is only by doing this, that our joy become full. Obedience leads to healthy relationships which leads to success.
