Creation. Genesis 1—2v3. God created all things by speaking them into existence. All of creation served God and worshipped Him.

Share these facts to get the conversation started:

God ordered, formed, and spoke everything into existence.
God gave the first humans beings full responsibility over the earth and animals.
Connect as a family
Grab a flashlight and read this part of The Big God Story outside at night. Before reading, take a few moments to look at the heavens. Talk about the differences between day and night, and light and dark. Then read Genesis 1—2v3.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these questions together:
If it were possible for you to have been there on one of the days of creation, which day would you choose and why?
Parents, be sure to share too!
Pray together, thanking God that He created us and made our world. Ask Him to show you ways to take care of the world He created.
These questions can easily extend into the rest of the week. Look for opportunities to bring conversations about how God is creator into your everyday life as a family.
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
A blessing to pray over your child: (Child’s name), God is the Creator and has made you with lots of love and joy. May you grow to know His love more and more. As you do, may you share His love and care with others.
