The Story of Creation in the Book of Genesis is the very first story in the bible. People of all ages, especially young children, enjoy this story with its description of sea monsters, land creatures, all kinds of birds, the night sky, the light of day, and of course human beings, created in God’s image. There is a certain cadence to this story, an order of all things. Ask your child what phrase is repeated throughout the story. The phrase is “and God saw that it was good” or in some translations, “God was pleased with what she saw”. We all understand the truths of Evolution, however, that shouldn’t take away from this beautiful story of life on earth.
