Genesis 1:1-2:4

This story embodies the fullness and sincerity of God. God’s ultimate and absolute power is demonstrated from His ability to create all the wonders of the universe from nothing. It shows His capacity to do good, to evaluate the goodness which He has created, admire it, and compound upon it more goodness. It also tells of the love God has for us, in creating us in His own image. Finally, the day of rest God took can be examined and mirrored by us, in that while work and devotion to each other and the world around us is not only important but crucial, it is also necessary to take periods of rest to enjoy what God has given us and to give thanks.
