Of Creation

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

What does this mean? — Answer.

I believe that God has made me and all creatures;

that He has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my limbs, my reason, and all my senses, and still preserves them;

in addition thereto, clothing and shoes, meat and drink, house and homestead, wife and children, fields, cattle, and all my goods;

that He provides me richly and daily with all that I need to support this body and life, protects me from all danger, and guards me and preserves me from all evil;

and all this out of pure, fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me;

for all which I owe it to Him to thank, serve, praise and obey Him. This is certainly true.
