5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water."
7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.
WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THESE SCRIPTURES ?
WHAT IS IT SAYING TO YOU ?
These verses illustrate several things:
1. God is a constant and endless force that controls all things.
2. God not only creates things He works on them to make them even better (1:2-1:6)
3. Lands do not belong to people but to God as He created them (1:6) Therefore national interests should be secondary to doing the right thing.
