In The Beginning

Genesis, the first book of the Bible, tells the beginning of God's creation and how He loves humans.

The people that returned God's love were obedient to His Will no matter what hardships resulted.  These exceptional humans knew they needed a Father to guide and help them grow spiritually.

Noah loved and pleased God, so he obtained information for physical salvation but witnessed the world's destruction in a flood.

Abraham loved and pleased God but underwent many difficult tests along with his material rewards.

Joseph loved and pleased God but was sold into slavery at 17 until his release at age 30 for a high ranking position.

Being God's beloved children does not necessarily bring riches and comfort.  The Father disciplines and tests His children for spiritual growth with any physical rewards being secondary.

Love God by viewing the eternal picture and striving for spiritual growth!
