TO CHEW ON: "...And God saw that it was good.... And God saw that it was good." (Genesis 1:18 & 21)
Not only can God make something out of nothing. He is also full of original and interesting ideas. There is variety in the planets, stars, galaxies, moons and meteors of space. Think about the assortment of birds and animals that live on land. And then there’s the teeming life in the sea. Can you name these fishy creatures? (Use the pictures below)
God loves variety. When He looked at what He had made, He said, “This is good!”
PRAYER: Thank You, God, for creating so many different and interesting creatures. Amen.
