This is the last article in the series on improving our personal work habits by studying God’s work habits. Have you ever wondered why God gave us a step-by-step account of His work in Creation? Why did He put in certain details and leave out others? Who cares? Isn’t evolution a fact? I believe Darwinistic evolution is bunk: Polished, pseudo-intellectual, well-packaged, mass-marketed BUNK. I believe the Bible’s account is accurate and factual. The Bible is an archeologically-supported historical narrative, not a textbook. Our textbooks are always being rewritten, but the content of the Bible is unchanging truth. With this underpinning, I believe that not only was the seventh day of rest established for our benefit, but that the entire creation process was recorded so that we could learn to work wiser. The more we learn to work like the Creator of our universe worked, the better we will operate within the world we live in. So, what can we learn today?

This is the second-last article in a series, taken from Genesis chapter one, on improving our personal productivity by studying how God works. Today’s lesson: DELEGATE. God finished His work only after He had appointed someone else to take care of the earth. For this task, God created and commissioned mankind.1 He made mankind in His image.2
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. (Genesis 1:26 ESV.)
Many people in the Western world have financial problems because of bad work habits. They are struggling with basic skills. It’s time we all went back and learned from our Creator. This is our seventh lesson on improving our personal productivity based on the Bible. In Genesis chapter one, God gave us a day by day account of how He made everything. Do you remember what God did on day two of seven? He made two large “arenas.” At the end of Day Two, unlike the ending of all the other days, there was nothing “good” to see. There were just two large empty spaces: The sky above and the waters below. God prepared the spaces on Day Two, and then on Day Five, God filled them with living creatures.
This is our sixth lesson in improving personal productivity based on a study of Genesis chapter one.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,” and it was so. God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.
This is our fifth lesson in improving personal productivity based on a study of Genesis chapter one.
Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear,” and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” God made the expanse, and separated the waters, which were below the expanse from the waters, which were above the expanse; and it was so. God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
