Today's reading: Genesis 1:26-31
Man was God's crowning act of creation. After speaking into existence nature as we know it and creating all other living beings, God caps off His marvelous handiwork with the creation of mankind.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." (vs. 27)
I never tire of reading the creation account, specifically the verses that lay out God's creation of man, because of the way these passages reveal the extraordinary love and care God has for us. On the sixth day, when God looks over all He has created (nature and living creatures PLUS man), we see this: "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good" (vs. 31, emphasis mine).
What do the final verses of Genesis 1 show us about how God views and feels about each of us? What does this passage reveal about the significant value we have in His eyes? Tami
