God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness, “day,” and “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.”
God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it.
The first story in Genesis is the mythical story of God creating the world in six days as the seventh he rested. This story teaches us how much God loves us and how much work he put into giving us the power and love of the earth, we could have had it all with purity, yet we are now all born with original sin. If we followed God's word perfectly, we would have things perfectly. He gave us the power to rule over all the animals in the sky, sea and land. This story is meant to tell us how much we should love God and protect the beautiful things he has made.
