Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. Genesis 2:15 NASB
When some imagine what the Garden of Eden must have been like, I’m sure ideas of Adam and Eve laying out besides the water eating sweet grapes comes to mind.
But God didn’t put Adam in the garden to sit around and be a couch potato. He gave him a job!
Man’s first job was a gardener. God put Adam in the garden to cultivate and keep it.
Yes, Adam was going to eat fruits and vegetables, but he also played a part in working it.
God is still calling us to work.
We work for a living to pay the bills. But He is also calling us to work in His field.
EVERY Believer plays a part in this work. This doesn’t only fall to pastors and church staff.
So how are you working? What has He called you to? If you don’t know, ask Him. He will show you, just open your eyes.
Father, thank You for work that is pays eternal dividends.
