Building Sustainably: Learning From God
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. – Genesis 1:3-5
This passage offers us an unusual insight into the creative strategy of God. After having created the structure (the heavens and earth) as the base for His operations, He thereafter proceeded to create light, a system of illumination, so He could appreciate His projects.
He also created Day and Night, a measuring system, with which He could track His own progress, rather than leave it all to chance or whims. He that really has no one to report to still instituted a system of accountability that would help Him not only to derive encouragement from the development of His work, but one that would also aid the evaluation of His progress within the confines of time.
That is why the concluding part of the passage introduced a new phrase, a measuring phrase, “So the evening and the morning were the first day.”
If you desire to build a sustainable entity, then you need to learn from the way God builds His own.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
