We cannot fathom the majesty of God’s all-encompassing Creation.
It is Friday and, on The Fifth Day, the Lord brings forth all of the creatures of the skies and seas. For the first time, birds take wing in the open firmament of the heavens, the waters teem with fish, and great whales roam the oceans. “Increase and multiply,” the Lord commands, “fill the waters of the sea, and let the birds be multiplied upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:20–23)
