Today’s reading: Genesis 2:4-25

After giving us what I’ll call the 50,000 foot view of creation in Genesis 1, Genesis 2 then zooms in for an up close and personal look at the creation of mankind–man and woman. Once again I was struck by the special consideration given and also the extraordinary care and treatment God took regarding man. My favorite thing about this account (and something that I need reminding of often) is how it highlights God’s love and the incredible value we each have in His eyes.

“[T]hen the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature” (vs. 7).

What about the creation of mankind stood out to you most from Genesis 2, and why? What does this account reveal about our responsibility to work? What are two or three specific things from this passage that show you how valuable you are to God? Tami
