On The Fifth Day God Had Some Fun

We’re all familiar with the story of creation as told in Genesis, Chapter 1 in the Bible.  Here’s from the New International Version:

On the fifth day, “God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the seaand every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it,according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.”

I find it interesting that birds are the only type of animal specifically mentioned in the creation story.  I like to think that when God got to the warblers he decided to have some fun; make them bounce around like ping-pong balls with dabs of bright colors all over them.  Let’s see if you can guess which type of warbler He created from its description.

How did you do?  Hope you passed the pop quiz.  God is wonderful in many ways, and for whatever His reason birds were the only type of animal specifically mentioned in the Bible.  I am thankful every day for the birds and the variety He created.
