Commentary: God created.  We cannot create something from nothing, but God can, and did!  He created light and darkness, sky and land and water, tress and plants, sun and moon, birds and fish and all animals, and man; humankind - Adam and Eve.  They were given free will, the ability to make choices.  They ate from the forbidden tree, and the serpent’s urging, and were expelled from the Garden.

Focus Theme: Words!!!  In association with our upcoming year-long study on the Power of Words, consider how words are used in today’s reading.  Who spoke and how did they use their words?  Over the past week how have you used your words?  Which character do your words most closely mirror?
