Why Did God Create the World?
God created the world and everything in it because he enjoys making things, and he wanted to be with us. God created people because he wanted to have friends, men and women, boys and girls, with whom he could share his love. He created the world for them to live in and enjoy.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth ... Then God looked over all that he had made. It was excellent in every way. (Genesis 1:1, 31)
Genesis 1:1-2:1; Psalm 19:1, Isaiah 45:7
Note to Parents
This question is a good opportunity to tell your children that God's plan involves them. God created the world and everything in it - including your children - so that he could have people to love.
