Today’s reading: Genesis 1-11

Next week we’re going to take a short break from the LONG Book of Genesis and spend a week or two in Proverbs before turning back to Genesis where we’ll pick up with the account of Abram and Sarai.

We’ve spent the last two weeks taking in the first eleven chapters of Genesis, starting with God creating the world and concluding with the account of the tower of Babel. As I’ve read these accounts, God has highlighted and impressed on my heart a number of lessons. For me, the most significant take away from these chapters was the needed reminder about the sinful nature of mankind and how quickly we fall away from God and into sin when we choose to focus on and live for ourselves. Thank you, God, for loving us so dearly, and for showering us with Your grace and mercy!

What’s the most significant message or lesson God impressed on your heart as you read the accounts of Adam and Eve through Noah and his descendants? Why is it important for you to know about and have a good understanding of creation and God’s initial relationship and interactions with man? Tami
