The First Thing Created

You created my inner parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”
Psalm 139:13

The word translated “created” in this verse is not the usual word for “create”, but since God is the One doing the work, “create” is appropriate.
“Create” is also appropriate in Proverbs 8, where the Son of God is talking about how he came into being: “The LORD created me the beginning of His way, the first of His works.  I was anointed from eternity, before the beginning, before earth existed” (Prov. 8:22–23).
What wonderful things about our heavenly Father are revealed in the fact that in the beginning, of all the numberless possibilities available to Him, the first thing He created was somebody – a Son – to love!
