spiritual growth, so we will look more like him. And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures
according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along
the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.”
And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their
kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the
creatures that move along the ground according to their
kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Creation of Human Beings (Genesis 1:26-28)

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our
likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the
birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and
over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God
created man in his own image, in the image of God he
created him; male and female he created them. God blessed
them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number;
fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and
the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves
on the ground.”

Learning that there is no dignity apart from God, how
