Genesis 1 recounts God’s creation of Heaven and Earth. Throughout the chapter, we read God’s pronouncement that everything God created “was good” (Genesis 1:9,25,31). Even though Adam and Eve, through their fall into sin, destroyed the perfection of the Earth, God’s creation was still good. James writes, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the Heavenly lights” (James 1:17). Even though we misuse God’s gifts, they are still good and perfect. God calls us, his stewards, to strive for excellence, too. God continues to give us good and perfect gifts in order that sinners might be brought into relationship with God.

About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
