This week's lesson (December 30 - January 5): the Influence of Materialism

1. Skim Genesis 1
A. Notice how everything in God's creation is "good," with a place for everything, and everything in its place. What does this tell you about the world in which we live? 
B. What job is given humanity in Genesis 1:26-30? How can we do this job today?
2. Skim Genesis 2
A. Notice how God fills the Garden of Eden (literally "the Garden of Delight') with beautiful things. What does this tell you about God? How does this add to your understanding of Genesis 1's pronouncement that all of God's creation is "good"? 
B. What job is given humanity in Genesis 2:15? How can we do this job today? 
3. Thought question: God created this world and called it "good." What's more, He filled the Garden of Delight with beautiful things -- so what's wrong with materialism?
