And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible.)
God shows us that man is a compound being; having a body and soul distinctly and separately created. The body derives its origin from the earth because it is formed from dust. It is decomposable and perishable.
When God breathed into man’s nostrils, the lungs expanded and he became a living soul. Every life matters to God because every man has a soul that will live forever.
The Master Designer of mankind is concerned about all of us.
Prayer: There is none like You, Lord! Thank you for forming and designing mankind and giving us Your breath so that we could have an understanding of how awesome You are. Amen.
