Genesis 1:24-27 & 2:7 (NIV)
God’s world is so beautiful and unique. Have you ever noticed the differences between a cute, little bushy tailed squirrel scampering about from tree to tree? And then, along comes a toad with warts all over, green in color, bulging eyes, and flicking tongue.
These two animals are so different and yet they have the same creator who said “let there be the birds in the sky, the wild animals, the creeping things crawling on the ground.
God has made his crowning creation, that of men and women who were the recipients of God’s image and his own breath.
Our world is such a miracle! I thank God for his sense of humor seen in some of his uniquely funny bugs and even animals.
Key verse – 2:7 – the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
