The Creation

From Genesis 1–2; Moses 1–3; Abraham 4–5


Long before I can remember, God created a beautiful place for me to live.

When He began making the earth, He separated the day from the night. He made the sun, moon, and stars so I would always have light to guide me.


He created the sky, seas, and land. He covered the earth with all kinds of plants.

He created birds to fly in the sky, fish to swim in the seas, and animals to live on the land.

Whenever I see God’s creations, I feel reverence and love for Him. I’m grateful He made this earth for me.
