Reading – Genesis 2:15
“The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.”
Genesis 2:15 NLT
Our front yard’s not in bad shape.
Sure, the lawn needs a little help, but it’ll come around. It’s only getting it’s first mowing today.
Our backyard on the other hand…
Let’s just say that Better Homes and Gardens has not scheduled a photo shoot yet.
With all the work that it needs, it’s a bit overwhelming.
I’m not really tending my garden like Adam was tasked with doing.
But then, is that what this verse should mean to us today?
I tend to think of this verse in terms of our entire environment.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to go all political with this. I recognize that different people see that task in different ways.
For me, I try to not be wasteful with the resources God has provided for me and do my part to keep my surroundings beautiful.
I’ll be working in the backyard today toward that aim.
What about you?
How do you see this verse playing out in your life?
What do you consider to be your garden and how are you taking care of it?
