We all have a sense that things are not the way they are supposed to be. We look at the pain, brokenness, and evil of the world around us, and we know this world was designed for something better. But what is that "better?" What is the ideal state we should be aiming for? As we turn to the very beginning of the Bible, we find in Genesis 1-3 the picture of how things ought to be, the reason for why we aren’t there, and the hope for how we might one day return.
