Made to Create and Give (Sermon Audio Based on Gen 1: 20-31)
As people created in the image of God, what does the first creation story (yes, there are two in Genesis) tell us about God and you?
Who is God in Genesis 1? God is powerful (things happen with a simple sentence) and wonderful (literally) being. God gives generously, sharing the creation with humanity. If we are made in the image of God, what does that say about you and me? We have been made to create and give.
Sometimes I ask myself how much creating and giving I am doing. It's very easy in a culture focused on consumption to become detached from creating and giving. In creating and giving, I see more of who God is, and who I was made to be.
