In the beginning...

Today's Reading: Genesis 1-3 and Matthew 1

Here we are at the beginning of the Bible:

God is the ultimate artist. As we begin this 'Artists Reading Plan' it seems appropriate to turn back to those first moments of the universe, when God breathed everything into existence and showed us what creativity is all about. Why would God choose to create the cosmos? Because it brings Him glory, and He wanted to be in relationship with humankind.

What in the first few pages of the Bible inspires you?

The painting above was done by an artist Rick Rietveld and can be found on his website.

  1. That sand art was fantastic! It is great to watch the act of creation of an artistic piece and to reflect on the amazing way God was able to create the universe.
