Genesis 2:1-4

Chapter 2

Thus the heavens and the earth and all their array were completed.
Since on the seventh day God was finished with the work he had been doing, he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken.
So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.
1 Such is the story of the heavens and the earth at their creation. 
Reflection:  Yesterday I bit off more than I can chew.  Too many words at one time.  Today I will just finish the first story of creation.  Maybe this was put into a separate chapter because it was just that important.  Humans need a time for rest.  Our bodies were not created to go constantly we need time to reboot and relax.  Yet in striving for perfection so often we spend so much time going and going.  God has given all of humanity the opportunity to be like him.  We can rest.  He begins the Word with this perfect example of how to live our humanity by following His example.  I also note that the work was finished.  So often another aspect of our society is to be lazy and give up.  We like to be finished and never try our hardest.  God rested when the work was finished.  I need to set weekly goals and then accomplish them.  I need to work hard to create all that I am called to create then on the day of rest I am called to share with my family and enjoy the fruits of all that labor.

  1. The seventh day wasn't included before because it needs to stand alone. We always need to remember to keep it Holy. Honor our God with all that we do every day, but especially the Holy Day.
