In my previous post about “Why God Made Girls,” I promised you I’d show you what the Bible says about our place in God’s creation — so here we go!
Most of us know the story of creation from Genesis, but I’m going to summarize it for you here because I want you to notice something cool that most people don’t notice.
Day 1 – God made light and separated light from dark. Called the light morning and the darkness evening
Day 2 – God separated the water from the sky
Day 3 – Oceans and land & plants and trees
Day 4 – Sun, moon and stars created
Day 5 – Fish for the sea, birds for the air; no land animals yet
Day 6 – Land animals and Man.
The Bible says that after God made Adam, He brought to Adam all the animals to be named. This means that God looked over this super cool world He created. He looked over the majestic mountains and towering trees. God looked over and into the restless seas. He looked at all of the different animals He’d created and at Adam and decided that the world just wasn’t done yet. The world, God decided was not quite complete, it wasn’t beautiful enough yet, it was still missing something.
That’s when God made us — girls. We are the finishing touch on God’s masterpiece. God’s creation wasn’t complete without us! I don’t know about you but I really like being the finishing touch on the masterpiece of creation.
Genesis 2:19-20 – Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. The man gave named to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
