Read: Genesis 1:20-25
On the fifth day God created the birds and the fish. Have you ever noticed how many different kinds of birds there are? God made each of them ‘according to their kind.’ They are all so different! They have different colours, sizes, and even their eggs look different. Each type of bird has a beak that is designed for the type of food they eat. They all make nests, but there are many different types of nests. Somehow, each kind of bird knows exactly how to make the type of nest that is perfect for their environment! Many birds migrate in different seasons. They travel to places where there is food and weather that is good for them. Birds don’t have passports, compasses or maps, yet they know exactly where to go! God had a specific design for each of them.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:29 that God sees the sparrows, and not one of them falls to the ground without God knowing about it. God knows all the details about everything. He knows each animal and each person in this world! If you start to look at the tiniest details in the world, you’ll never find a thing that God doesn’t know. He knows everything! Isn’t that amazing?
- Go have a look at some animals, and carefully look at the details on its body. How many details can you find? List them all. God created those details!
Thank God for being the Creator of all the birds and the fish. Thank Him for caring for us more than for the birds of the air.
