The Touch of God

Our boys are in a basketball program called Upwards -- it is really neat! They learn the basics of the sport while learning sportsmanship and Christian living. They had their first game today. It was fun to watch a group of first and second graders trying to get the ball and shoot -- regardless of who had the ball to start with (they even took it away from their teammates!). At halftime one of the officials gave a devotional. While I read the beginning of Genesis just a week or so ago, he taught me something new.

I had never paid attention to the fact that God spoke the world and it's inhabitants into being...all except for man. Man was so important to Him that he formed Him lovingly with His own hands. Then he breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. All the animals came to life without this personal touch.

God's glory never fails to amaze me. He put Himself in to our creation -- literally. And He wants the best for us no matter what we do.
