God is Wise

God planned to send a flood to destroy “all living things that live under heaven” (Genesis 6:17b). God told Noah to build a boat. He also told Noah to bring his family and some animals into the boat. After the flood, Noah’s family and these animals reproduced and filled the earth again.
God is very wise. He made all animals to belong to families. For example, a German shepherd belongs to the dog family and a chimpanzee belongs to the ape family. The animals on earth today are descended from the animals who came out of the boat that Noah built. Scientists can study the DNA of these animals and know which family they come from.
Although animals from the same family are alike in many ways, each animal is unique, too. God is very wise. He gave us a wide variety of animals to use and enjoy on earth.
Thank You, God, for being so wise and creative!
