In the beginning
It was the sixth day of creation. Adam the first man on earth, found himself surrounded by a beautiful garden called Eden. Up above, the sun shone with a warm glow. Around him were all kinds of trees and flowers and shrubs. There were many kinds of animals too, and all of them were tame. There were birds, furry animals, climbing animals and creeping insects. God brought all the creatures He had created to Adam, and whatever name Adam decided on, that was its name.
Meanwhile, the Lord noticed that Adam had no one like himself to talk to. Although Adam was made in the image of God and could talk to God, Adam was human and had no one to be his close friend and helper.
What makes me so special?
Isn’t it wonderful to realize that of all the thousands of creatures God created, only Adam was made in His image? God placed a spirit inside Adam so that he could talk to God, be creative (like thinking up all sorts of names), love, and feel the need to be loved.
When God made you He also placed a spirit inside you – a part of you that will live for ever and ever. “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). You are part of God’s beautiful creation. God took as much care to form you as He did when He created Adam (Psalm 139:13).
