The scripture for today, January 31, is Genesis 1:31 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning ~ the sixth day.”
Oh how God loves to spoil us! He didn’t create a barren earth and then order us to get to work and plant something. He got everything just right. And then…. And then…. And then his crowning glory ~ he created us! Special us!
However, as perfect as he made earth, he left some joyful things for us to create ourselves, for he made us like him ~ creative. He left the jewels unmined, the buildings unbuilt, the songs unwritten, the paintings unpainted, the ships unmade, the sculptures uncarved….
Here we are surrounded by everything we need to imitate one part of God ~ his creative side. Today, create something!
