Genesis 2:1-3 NIV 2011

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.


God ordered His creation day by day. Day 1 He “created the heavens and the earth, light and darkness.” On Day 2 he created the vault “sky.” The third day God separated the water and the land placing vegetation on the land. Day 4 He separated the sky into day and night with “two great lights.” He created living creatures in the water and birds in the air on the fifth day. Day 6 God created living creatures, man and vegetation to feed all. He rested on the seventh day. Creation is God’s work of perfect order.


Getting ready for the return of my daughter and son-in-law, we tried to make order of the house that was messy. I didn’t want either of the “grands” to think we only do this to make their mother happy. My granddaughter began to bristle at the task. I thought of Genesis and how God ordered the earth. I then proceeded to explain God’s creation is orderly. He created us as His perfectly ordered children.


How do you rank being orderly on a daily basis?


His creation,
