Genesis 1:10: God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:16-18: And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:21: So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:27-28: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God BLESSED them...

Genesis 1:31 And God saw EVERYTHING that he had made, and behold, it was very GOOD. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.


THEN...

Adam and Eve sinned. Nothing has been "good" ever since. We now exist under the curse.

Also, I've never noticed before, but there is no specific "it was good" for man. He was included in the general everything was good, but no specific like everything else. Hmmm. Maybe it's nothing.

In Christ.
