B. Development-

1.In Gen. 1:26-28, we find that God created us in His image.
Why is that special?
Because God wanted us to be different and serve his purpose to worship him.
What does that mean?
We are created different than any other creature in the world. We have a soul and self awareness. We also are able to make decisions based on situations and not just instinct.
2.Gen. 2:18-24. We see that God knew it that we were not created to be alone. Wanted us to have companionship.
Is it more fun to swing alone or with someone?
Do you like to be around people all the time?
Do you like to be alone all the time?
God created eve from adam. God called Adam "Man" Adam called eve a woman because God took her from him.
When people get married they are now one. The two separate people have come together to be one flesh, a team not to be separated. That is where family starts.
3.Gen. 4:1-2. Eve had two sons. We don't know much about how they got along as kids but we do know that they became heard workers in supporting them selves and families. They did have a big disagreement, because Cane did not do what God wanted and Able did, instead of Cane doing what God wanted him to do he became jealous and killed his Brother.
What we learn from this is that we are to live as God wants us to live because he knows what's best for us, and because he makes the rules, (God created us so we belong to him).
4. Eph. 6:1-3. We are to obey our parents. Honor our moms and dads.
What are the benefits for doing this?
What would the negative outcome be if we did not do what God says?
