God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. Evening came and then morning: the sixth day. Genesis 1:31 HCSB
The students at Little Flock Christian Academy take tests each year to determine how well they are learning certain subjects in comparison to other schools around the state. This year the LFCA student scores were well above the national average. They have done very well and we are very proud of them. When we accomplish a goal for which we have been striving, we should be proud.
After creating everything in heaven and earth in six days, God stepped back and looked at His creation. He was proud of His accomplishment and stated it was very good. Observing the way that everything was created and how it all works so well together is reason to be proud. I have heard it said, “God does not make junk.”
Challenge: When God created you, I am confident that He stepped back and said, “It is very good.” You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Read the book Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey.
