Sunday, (Jan 3) – Give glory to God as the Creator of all things, that He spoke, and the universe came into existence; and at His command, flowers, trees and plants sprang from the ground, the seas teemed with living things and the earth with living creatures. Praise Him that the crown of His creation was humanity made in His image, and He gave us dominion over all the earth and everything in it. Ask God for forgiveness that we have failed in our stewardship to rule the earth, and have polluted His beautiful creation because of our fallen nature. Pray that the Lord will help us put on a new self, created to be like Him in true righteousness and holiness.
