The Sixth Day

On the sixth day, God created
all the animals and creatures that live on the land. And then, last of all, He created people. Genesis 1:26 talks about what God did. “Then God said, ‘Now let’s make humans who will be like us. They will rule over all the fish in the sea and the birds in the air. They will rule over all the large animals and all the little things that crawl on the earth.” God didn’t make anything else to be like Him. Only people are made like God.

God made people so that He could have a special relationship with us. God planned to do this even before He started creating the earth and all the things in it. People are God’s special creation. People are very important to God!

Notice that God also made man and woman for each other. God intended for a man and a woman to start a family together. Therefore,
God invented marriage. The devil has tried to attack the relationship between a man and a woman. Why? Because this relationship is a special creation of God. God even uses marriage as a way to explain His relationship to people. It is another way that God shows His plan through creation.

Thank God today for making you His very special creation!
