Daily Bible Reading “Creation Day Six” (Genesis 1:24-31)

Genesis 1 26Creation Day Six

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Genesis 1:24-31. On the sixth day of creation, God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.”

God made the beast of the field, cattle, and every creature that creeps on the earth according to its kind. When God looked at His creation, He saw that it was good.

Next, God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

God created man in His own image. He created both men and women. God blessed them, and God told them to, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

God said to them, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”

God saw everything that He had made, and He thought that it was very good. The evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Notice that God created the herbs and fruit trees before He created the creatures that would need them for food. In His creation He made sure that He took care of the needs of every creature by providing them with everything they would need.

God gave man authority over all the creatures that He created. God also gave man and all the other creatures the ability to reproduce and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply.

Psalm 100:3 reminds us, “Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”

Isaiah 64:8 compares God to a potter and mankind to the clay, “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”

Acts 17:28-29 calls us God’s offspring, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Genesis 1:24-31

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

Things to think about:

  • What did God create in this Scripture?
  • What did He provide for food for the creatures that He created?
  • Who did God give authority over all His creation?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read and study this passage of Scripture we are thankful that You created us and that You created this world for us to live. You provide all of our needs. Help us not to take Your love and provision for granted. Help us to always be grateful for everything You do for us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
