Adam’s First Day

Genesis 2:4-9

When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil. 6 Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land. 7 Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.

8 Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 9 The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Questions to Think About

What do you think it would have been like to be Adam?  To wake up for the first time and not know who you are or where you are or why you’re there?  To have no memories and no identity?  To be all grown up, but not know how to walk yet?

What do you think Adam’s first thoughts were?  What do you think his first few hours of life were like?  What do you think were the first things God taught him?

One last thought: Do you think God had to potty train Adam?
