Bite-sized Thoughts on Scripture

Good Stuff

Today I read: Genesis 1-2:3

I guess you can call me a liberal creationist. I won’t argue about how He did it. 6 literal days or a few billion years? Did He use evolution as a means to create? When did the dinosaurs come into play? (and were they dizzy, dizzy?) All interesting questions and okay to debate, but I don’t want to put God in a box.

I don’t read Genesis 1 and 2 as a science textbook. The creation story, to me, is less about the process of creation and more about revealing who our God is. A God who turns chaos into something wonderful. A God who is creative, but not without order. An artist who carefully plans out His work.

And the best part? He creates good stuff. “It is good,” He says over and over. God made good stuff for us to enjoy. And WE are the very good stuff. YOU are the very good stuff.

Now that’s good stuff. 🙂
