Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3 verse 24: If  I did not act, these worlds would perish and I would cause confusion and destroy these peoples.

....continued from 3.23.

 

This verse summarizes the previous three verses. Living in eternal contentment the Lord of Creation need not act for any reason whatsoever. However, He acts on the Divine level to support actions in the relative field of life and evolution. Without evolution there would be confusion and destruction.
