Then 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 NIV

On the sixth day of creation God formed man. The one whom He intended to inhabit His lavish creation as home. A creation expressing His great love for people and a picture of His power and faithfulness. God trusts us to rule and equips us with reflections of His own character for just such a purpose.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him…?
Psalm 8:3-4 NASB

Consider creation – the vast ecosystem God created for us to inhabit. What emotions surface at such a great gift? What about the responsibility of caring for it? Ask Him: Who am I? that You are mind-full of me?
