There can’t be many passages of the bible more argued over than the first chapter of Genesis. The contentions rage on from all camps – Creationists, Evolutionists, and all shades in between. What I don’t get, is why people have to be so belligerent over one of the most beautiful pieces of writing in existence.
I’m not going there. I look at this passage and I see an almighty God who ‘broods’ over an unmade world. I like doing a few different crafts, and sometimes I hold the raw ingredients, and sit, and sit and ponder. My mind fills with the possibilities of what I could make. That’s what I see God doing here – planning a world full of wonderful people he could love and interract with. Then I realise, that he’s waited all that time to connect with me. I don’t want to keep him waiting any longer.
