“And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:18)
COMMENT: Yes, you are right! Since our Lead Scripture is in Genesis 1, this must be Creation! And since God is perfect, that which He created was perfect also. I imagine He was expressing the same kind of self-satisfaction an artist might have looking at a competed work Well, I am not an artist, and I don’t play one on TV either ; my wife, Rose-Marie, is the artist in the family. However, occasionally I get the same feeling of satisfaction that an artist gets after he looks at his finished product.
After laboring to cut the grass on my lawn, I stand back and survey my accomplishment and really feel good.
Likewise, I am sure that God is really pleased when He looks down on us, His creations, and sees us practicing righteousness.(1 John 3:7) He knows that we are only dust and will not be perfected until we meet Jesus face to face; but when He perceives that we are working out our salvation with fear and trembling, I am sure it puts a smile on His face.
