Bible Notes

Genesis 1:24-26 (10.07.19)

Genesis 1:24-26 NIV
And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. [25] God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.Genesis [26]
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

We tend to be creatures of habit. Most of us follow the same pattern each day, do similar things, even wear more or less the same clothes, but not God. God’s creation is wonderfully varied and creative, there are so many different forms of life that live on it from the magnificent blue whale to the smallest microscopic bug, and each species itself varies from organism to organism. What a mind lies behind it!

Father, help us to be mindful of our impact on your planet. Help us to care for it in all it’s variety rather than abuse it.
