Today's reading: Genesis 2:4-25

After giving us what I'll call the 50,000 foot view of creation in Genesis 1, Genesis 2 then zooms in for an up close and personal look at the creation of mankind--man and woman. Once again I was struck by the special consideration given and also the extraordinary care and treatment God took regarding man. My favorite thing about this account (and something that I need reminding of often) is how it highlights God's love and the incredible value we each have in His eyes.

"[T]hen the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature" (vs. 7).

What about the creation of mankind stood out to you most from Genesis 2, and why? What does this account reveal about our responsibility to work? What are two or three specific things from this passage that show you how valuable you are to God? Tami

For me what I take away is the fact that God has provided all things for man. If we focus on God and his provisions for us we will be truly happy. Many years later Jesus said, "seek ye first his kingdom and his righteousness and all other things shall be added.." Mat.6:33

How everything he created was to the fullest perfection, not a single detail is lacking including his instructions. It is our responsibility to be good stewards in maintaining the earth. Two things that show how much he values each and everyone of us is that he allows man to name every single creature in his creation, and considers a helper for him, knowing that he would be lonely without a companion. It is through these two people that the world will flourish.

God's hands-on approach in the creation of humanity reflects the truth that we're made in His image.
