Verse 1 of our Bible Reading says, “God created the sky and the earth.” Today we will talk about the Hebrew word that is translated “created.”
The word translated “created” means “made out of nothing.” Genesis, chapter 1, tells us all of the wonderful things God created from nothing! Sometimes I go outside at night and look at the stars. I remember that the earth is only a very small part of the universe. I like to think about how wonderful creation really is. But it is hard for me to imagine that God made everything from nothing!
I am excited to experience God’s creation by feeling, seeing, tasting and touching things. I also need faith to believe that God made all these wonderful things.
Even though we may not understand how God created the world, we can praise and thank Him for all the wonderful things He has made for us.
