Get into the Bible: God saw that it was Good

Wednesday 22nd May 2019

Instructions

Ideally go outside or do this whilst you are at a park or open space. If you are not able to do this outside, then find a suitable image(s) to show to the group.

Read extracts from Genesis 1

The Bible says: ‘God looked at everything he had made, and it was very good’.

Many Christians believe that the earth and everything on it were planned and created by a loving God. In the book of Genesis, God creates the animals and plants. He creates people and says they are to rule over the other aspects of creation.

Ask the children the following questions:

  • What do the children think ‘rule over’ means?
  • Does it mean we can do as we wish because we’re in charge?
  • What responsibility do we have for nature?
  • Have we looked after God’s creation well?

Finish in prayer thanking God for the wonder of nature and saying sorry for the times we have failed to look after it.
