On the Third Day, God Said… ‘Let the Land Produce Vegetation’

By Austin Roscoe Published on April 24, 2018

Editor’s Note: The Stream is running a 7 part Earth Week series celebrating each day of the first week of creation. You can find previous articles at the EarthWeek2018 series page. Be sure to check back every day this week!

God was busy on day three. Not only did He separate the land from the water, but He also created plant life. If you’ve ever marveled at a mountain range, enjoyed a delicious strawberry, or delighted in the fragrance of a rose, you know God did an incredible work on the third day. To commemorate, here are some beautiful photos of God’s handiwork:

Wild and Windy

This sounds like a lovely occasion to admire the many wildflowers growing in my backyard. Will you take a moment today to, figuratively or literally, stop and smell the roses?

The Third Day:

Genesis 1.9-13
