Crowning Act

| | Comments (2)

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 all other living beings, God then 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, and 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, living creatures plus man) we see this: "And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good" (vs. 31).

What do the final verses of Genesis 1 reveal about how God views us and our value in His eyes? What about God stood out to you the most from this passage, and why? Tami

He loves us more than we realize, and gave us only the best of everything he created with no limitations.

God's character was reflected in His, at that point, unsullied creation.
