“So God created man in his own image, In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 2:27
All that God created was good, very good! Including us! We are created to look like God (“in his image”)… I need to remember that when I consider how I treat others… they were created in the image of God! Also, God could have very well NOT created things to be good, but he did, which seems to show just how good and loving and beautiful he is.
God banished Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden because he didn’t want them to eat of the tree of life and live forever (Gen 3:22-23). I had always thought that man was made to be eternal (perhaps before the fall?), but now I’m not so sure. It’s interesting though that he didn’t forbid them to eat that tree, just the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Something to do:
See all that God created as good (don’t fear everything!), and trust in his actions and his works, especially since he was the one who created me and all that I have ever known or will know!
