Stimulating and Encouraging
Have you ever tried doing something, especially something challenging and difficult, without any encouragement? It’s not much fun and it can end up being really discouraging, can’t it? That’s exactly how God has created us, to work and be together! As God created this world and all living things, He pronounced each part of His creation as “good” (Genesis 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31). But Genesis chapter 2 backs up a bit and reviews God’s creation and tells us the very first thing that God ever identified as “not good” (Genesis 2:18).
