What was the first creation of God?
If you are like me, you may flip to the first pages of the Bible . There you’d find that the answer given is “the heavens and the earth.” But, there is another entity that lays claim to being the first creation of God. Wisdom cries out, “The LORD brought me forth as the first of His works, before His deeds of old; I was appointed from the beginning, before the world began” (Proverbs 8:22-23). Now, since this proclamation is placed in a highly poetic passage of Scripture (wisdom is even personified here!), we don’t want to be dogmatic about what it truly means. Nevertheless, when we ponder the mighty creative acts of God, let us recall that wisdom stakes its’ claim as God’s first creation.
