Let’s Study the Creation Week

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1

He created everything there is–nothing exists that he didn’t make.
John 1:3

Foundational to our belief system is our thoughts on how ourselves and the world around us came into being.  The Bible makes it very clear how the world began.  Let’s spend this week talking about the week of Creation as it is recorded in Scripture.  Begin by reading Genesis 1 for yourself.  Then each day tell your children what God made on that day during the week of Creation.  I hope by now you have a good Bible story book with illustrative pictures of what God made.

It is interesting to note that on the first three days God created the places and on the last three days He created things to reside in the places in the same order He created the places.  This information helps in remembering what was created when.

Share the above verses often as you use songs, hands-on activities, games, crafts, books, pictures, etc. to establish this truth in your children.  I’ll give you some suggestions each day, but I’m sure you can be more creative.
