Day 7

Weekly Truth

from the Genesis reading plan


Genesis 1:31

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week we will memorize the key verse for the book of Genesis, a declaration of God’s satisfaction with the work He accomplished while creating the world.

God saw all that He had made, and it was very good indeed.
—Genesis 1:31a

    Children are such a blessing. May we have eyes like them that are full of wonder!

    I often think of Gods creative work when I look upon the beauty of a landscape or gaze at the stars in the galaxies but I often forget that man, humanity and human beings are also Gods reflective creation and they too are “good” even when I see so much evil at work within them! God created man so He could have a relationship with him and that is the good!

    But more importantly on the seventh day He rested. As a child born in the very early 80s, I can remember businesses being closed on Sunday, or at the very least, not opening until noon. Sunday was for church and family. Nowadays Sunday seems to be just like any other day of the week for most folks. We have forgotten how to rest and not work, myself included. This year I want to make more of an effort to get back to my childhood and rest on Sundays.

    Good and Evil Angels
    The Bible makes clear that God creates everything good, and it describes categories of good angels, such as cherubim, seraphim, and archangel. We also know of two good angels named Michael (Daniel 10:13; Jude 9) and Gabriel (Daniel 9:21; Luke 1:19, 26). But not all angels are good. When a once-beautiful angel named Lucifer rebelled against God and was cast from heaven (Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 28), pulling down with him a third of the angelic host who joined his insurrection against God (Revelation 12:3-4, 9), evil was conceived.

    Did God create evil, or how did it come into the world? Why did God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden? How/why did Satan fall? If the tree wasn’t there then would the fall have ever happened?
    I am struggling to understand how a good God whose creation is good allowed anything evil. I understand we have free will, but why have evil as an option?

      I don’t have any answers or insight as I am very new to studying the bible. But I am walking this path with you and trying to find answers! Asking in a small group could be great to hear different perspectives and find what sits well in your heart. God bless Jo!
