RE - (God's greatest plan)

Genesis 1–2 tells the story of God’s creation of the world in 7 days.

On the first day, God created light in the darkness. On the second, He created the sky. Dry land and plants were created on the third day. On the fourth day, God created the sun, the moon and the stars. Water and sky animals were made on the fifth day, and on the sixth day, land animals and people were created. On the seventh day, God was pleased and rested.
