I've been studying Genesis, and recently noted that God made light on the first day, but the sun, moon and stars on the fourth day.
I've been wondering about that. God is perpetual light, so that He wouldn't suddenly *become* light and divide it from dark.
What I'm thinking is this: any artist must choose his medium (oil paints and canvas for a painting, bronze for a sculpture, piano or trumpet for music) before he creates the piece. These media all have certain properties, certain advantages, and certain limitations. Since God created the universe, I wonder if He chose His *medium* that day to create this universe, the physical laws that must be in effect for the creation to come into being?
Does that make sense? Hmm, something to ponder anyway.
