(Draw Fig. 1 — First God in heaven, then darkness, then earth.)
SECOND DAY—Then God said: "Let the land and the sea be separated." And immediately the waters went back, and THE LAND WAS MADE. (Draw Fig. 2.)
God also said: "Let us make MAN to our own image and likeness; and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth. . . ."—Gen. 1, 24. (Draw Fig. 6, adding animals and MAN to Fig. 5.)
So it was man . . . ourselves . . . who was to be the RULER of all the animals, the sea, the land, and the air. But why should we be the chosen ones to rule the whole world? BECAUSE GOD LOVED US! Can WE think of ever committing sin against so good a God? Let us show our love to Him and thank Him by keeping His commandments.
And He blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it. . . ."—Gen. 2, 1.
