Two ways to relate upwards
There are two ways to look at man’s relationship with the maker given one believes in the maker. The first is just between you and the maker. It exists in isolation and is timeless. The second is the history of man as related to the maker and where you, the individual, fit into this. This is less certain, for it depends upon interpretation of the past, which is never a sure thing. You can intuit you role somewhere in the timeline of the past, as long as you don’t write it in stone.
