God Creates the World

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God made the world

Key Verse:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”
Genesis 1:1

(Open the bible and read to your child Genesis 1:1 – 2:3) The Genesis story is not about the beginning of God, its about the beginning of the creation of the earth and all the things in it. It also speaks about how great and powerful God is. Nine times we see that it says, “God said” followed by, “it was good”. God spoke our universe into existence and it was good. When God finished his creation it says that he rested. Was it because he was tired? No, God’s creation was complete, and that seventh day was a holy day. A day to reflect on what God has done.

Tell about your favorite things in God’s creation—and why they’re your favorite. Perhaps you love the ocean and its fascinating creatures. Or maybe you adore the sight of snowcapped mountains. Ask your children about their favorites of God’s creations—and why they chose what they did. Then discuss ways you can appreciate God’s creation around you every day.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Go for a nature hike! Plan some time to get away from your home. Take your camera or camera phone to record some of your observations. Look closely at the things around you – look for patterns, designs, and qualities you’ve never noticed before, such as the design and symmetry of flower petals, leaves, and the wings of birds or insects. Talk about God’s creativity as you observe his awesome world.
