Genesis 1: 26 - 31

26 Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’ 29 Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.’ And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning – the sixth day.

Give Thanks … For the immense privilege of being made in the Image of God

Consider …. The use of the plural in vs 26. God is pointing towards the relationship that the Trinity enjoys. What relationships in your own life best reflect the deep, humble serving relationship in the Trinity. Thank God for those people.

Consider ….. How God gave mankind everything they needed to thrive. Where do you fall short in serving others that God has given you to love and care for. In what ways do you not provide either physically or emotionally for those that are closest to you?

Decide …. How can you relate to God and others today that will result in God looking at your life and saying …. “It is good”?
