On Wednesday mornings, I try to look over my lesson again for the Children's Bible Study on Wednesday nights. We are, currently, going through the "Hall of Champions" that is featured in the Hebrews 11. The many Bible Champions that had great faith in God and His will for their life. This week, we are looking at God's Creation and Noah. As a child you see things one way, but then as I have looked at the lesson, I see it in many different ways. It is hard to place why, but I do.
Here are some of my thoughts while looking at it through my adult eyes:
Genesis 1: Before there was anything, God had a divine plan. He already had a love for us as His creations as he developed the earth. He also through words has the power to create. This, I think, would have been a beneficial attribute to give to moms (within reason, of course). I'm thinking, "Grilled Cheese Sandwich!" Luk's lunch is made. See where I'm going with this. =) He spoke, it happened. That is really a complex notion, this is why having a faith as a child is awesome. As an adult there are all these elements that go into, however it does make God so much grander than what a child can phantom.
Genesis 6-9: God was MAD! People were not that far from the creation of Adam and Eve and the Fall. What happened? How did it get this bad? I look at today's society, and we almost want to excuse ourselves because of the time gap, but there is no excuse! There was one key thing that struck me.
