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 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 and also the extraordinary care and treatment God gave 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.

"Then 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

God molded man out of the dust that He had created in the likeness of Him, just like babies resemble their parents. I see the first sign that God as our Creator,but He wants to be in relationship like a Father and child in the fact that He made us in Their image.
I see that God provided a lavish living space for Adam (gold and other special jewels were in this fabulous garden for Adam to work in. Then God had compassion on Adam..."not good for man to be alone. God performed the perfect surgery on Adam and gave him a wife from his rib.
We become aware that God had other humans in mind besides Adam and Eve to cling to each other and leave their fathers and mothers, I thought this rather interesting.
