January 25 | God Gives Life
“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:26-27
Reading: Genesis 1
God is the Creator of all things and after each day He looks at His work and saw that it was good, but day six was different. God made man and woman. When looking at His creation of both male and female God saw that it was very good. God values human life more than all else in the world. Because unlike the rest of creation, God made human life in his own image, to reflect his own glory. Our humanity alone, rather than our capacities or abilities, makes us valuable to God. All humans are created with equal value. All people, male and female, from every “tribe and tongue” throughout the ages are equal. Human beings are more valuable than anything else in creation. As image bearers of the eternal God, we possess a special dignity and eternal destiny.
Prayer: Lord, You are My Creator. You have created me and everyone with great value. Help me to see others as You see them. Help me to love others as You love them. You have created me with a great purpose. You have made me in Your image to reflect Your glory. Help me to honor You in all I do.
