"the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." Genesis 2:7 NIVNot one other created thing was brought to life with the very breath of God!!
"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good." Genesis 1:31 NIVOf all the other things God created, Adam and Eve were the only ones God called "very good." Human beings were God's favorite part of His creation--they still are. Granted, they can also DO some pretty ugly things, but what He made them to be is beautiful. How desperately we need to see people through eyes that notice what He made in them.
"When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God." Genesis 5:1 NIVFather, help us to see Your image imprinted on every person we meet, and help us to treat them with the love You want us to show them. Don't let us take the pretty things You make for granted. Help us to speak pretty . . . live pretty . . . love pretty . . . like YOU! It is no secret that Jesus has the prettiest heart of all--make mine look just like His! Pretty please! What's the prettiest thing you've seen today?
