Discussion Starter: Name something that you think is good. Examples may include good food or a good movie or a good place for having fun.
Now name something that you think is VERY good. What is the difference between something being good and something being VERY good?
Devotional: Genesis 1 tells us that God took six days to create everything. Beautiful, powerful, and special things took place on each of those days. God was making the universe and Earth EXACTLY the way He wanted it. Creation shows us that God is both the most creative artist and the best builder there has ever been.
Read Genesis 1:4, 1:10, 1:12, 1:18, 1:21, 1:25
QUESTION: When God makes something new in these verses, what is said?
In saying that “it was good,” God was pleased with how everything was turning out. Each day, something new was taking place, and it was always just the way God wanted it. But then Genesis says something a little bit different.
Read Genesis 1:26-31
DISCUSSION: Why does Genesis 1:31 say “it was VERY good?”
Making human beings completed everything God wanted to create. It was only after making us that His Creation was “very good.” While everything God has made is special, we are the most special part. God made each of us special, and His Story is about just how much He loves us.
PRAYER: Before praying, have family members share something that they think is special about each other. Thank God for what makes us special and His love for us.
