MEMORY VERSE

Psalm 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God, the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

Have you heard the creation story? The story of how there was emptiness and darkness until God decided to create a whole new world. Let’s see if you can describe what God created on each day.

Day 1: God created ________________________________________ (Genesis 1: 3-5)

Day 2: God created ________________________________________ (Genesis 1: 6-8)

Day 3: God created ________________________________________ (Genesis 1: 9-13)

Day 4: God created _______________________________________ (Genesis 1: 14-19)

Day 5: God created _______________________________________ (Genesis 1: 20-23)

Day 6: God created _______________________________________ (Genesis 1: 24-27)

Day 7: God _____________________________________________ (Genesis 2: 2-3)

As you were working on writing everything down that God created, did you notice a line that was repeated? Several times in the story of the creation, the Bible says that God saw what he created was good. God’s creation was perfect, beautiful, and very, very good.

God didn’t rush though his creation; he took his time and enjoyed each part. God stopped to enjoy his beautiful work of art. Then he gave his world to us as a present to enjoy, but also to care for. God made this world for us.

The Bible says that God created the world in six days. Can you take one week to care for God’s world? Can you think of seven things you could do this week to care for your part of God’s creation? Try doing thing each day for an entire week. God will really enjoy your efforts to make his world a better place.
