Listen to the way the biblical authors start these 14 books, psalms and letters. What matters to them most? Where do they want to begin with their readers and hearers? From Genesis to Revelation, these verses were penned over many centuries. Allow these short passages to lead you to meditate on God’s world and God’s caring relationship with the creation. Allow the verses to lead you into the big picture of God’s work: God’s work of creation; God’s work in people (friends and enemies of God alike); God’s work in our individual lives; God’s work in the midst of pain and suffering; God’s work in redemption through Jesus Christ; and God’s work in guiding history and bringing it eventually to a glorious new beginning.
