A very long time ago God decided to make the whole world and everything in it. And he didn’t have to lift a finger.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about how everything was created in just six days! Have you ever thought about where the stars came from or how the oceans were formed? Have you ever wondered how giraffes got those long necks or how flowers smell so good? It’s because God created them to be that way. In the very first book of the Bible, Genesis, we read all about how God created everything. God is so powerful and awesome that he didn’t have to spend years creating and perfecting what he made. All he did was say, “Let there be light!” and there was light. Or, “Let there be plants and trees” and instantly trees and plants were everywhere! And, on the last day he made his most special creation- people! He took extra special care in creating us. The Bible says that he created us in his image, meaning we were made to have relationship with him. He wanted to have a friendship with us that he couldn’t have with animals or plants. That’s why we are God’s most special creations!
