the sun does not willingly shine upon you to give you light to serve sin and Satan; the earth does not willingly yield her increase to satisfy your lusts; nor is it willingly a stage for your wickedness to be acted upon; the air does not willingly serve you for breath to maintain the flame of life in your vitals, while you spend your life in the service of God’s enemies. God’s creatures are good, and were made for men to serve God with, and do not willingly subserve to any other purpose, and groan when they are abused to purposes so directly contrary to their nature and end.

Jonathan Edwards, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God


Did God provide us with everything we have in this world so that we can use it to sin? He doesn’t fill our lungs with air so we can sin against him, but glorify him. Satan wants us to use all of these gifts for other purposes to our own destruction.
