Nature (4)

The Bible tells us that God created the world in six days. On the first day, He made light. Verse 3 of our Bible Reading says, “Then God said, ‘Let there be light!’ And the light began to shine.”
Years ago, my family and I visited Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. We walked a long way underground. There were lights along the path so we could see. The tour guide took us to the deepest part of the cave. Then he told everyone that he was going to turn off all the lights.
That was the darkest dark I have ever seen! I couldn’t see my hand in front of me. I couldn’t see anything at all. It was scary. I was very happy when the guide turned the lights back on.
Can you imagine living in a world without light? That would be terrible! When you see the sun today or you turn on an electric lamp, think about light. Think about how important light is for your life. Then praise God for creating light!
