LEARNING FOCUS 2: The Qualities God Gives Us and Wants Us to Develop.
People are made to be like God, to be able to know and love God and each other. We can express the greatness of God by the love we show each other. Christians are reminded of the love of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
A long time ago, one of the priests in the Temple in Jerusalem wrote about the creation of world and its people. We can read about this story in the Book of Genesis.
Then God said: “Let us make people to be like ourselves.
Men and women who can know and love me and know and love one another; and I will give them charge of the fish of the seas, the birds of the sky, and all the animals wild and tame and all the reptiles that crawl upon the earth.”
So God created men and women who could love and care for the world and everything in it and could love and care for one another; men and women who could know God and love and serve God.
God blessed them and said to them: “Fill the world with people; look after the world; look after one another; take care of the fish and the birds, the animals and the reptiles, the trees and the flowers and the plants.”
And so it was. God saw all creation and indeed it was very good.
Based on Genesis 1:26-31
