Genesis 1:20–23 (ESV)
Creation of the World (Day 5)
20 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” 21 So
God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And
God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
On day 5, God created the birds and sea life. When God had created them, he blessed them. This is the first recorded blessing in the Bible: “Be fruitful
and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”
I pray: O Lord, I love to eat fish and even birds. I give
thanks for all your creation as you get ready for day 6. Amen.
