When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens – and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground…
Take note of the TWO reasons why there was no growth:
a) Cause God had not sent rain
b) Cause there was no one to work the ground.
Sometimes we cry out to God to send rain, either in our own lives, our families, work places or churches…yet why would he send rain if there is no one to work the land and look after it?
------New testament: The harvest in plentiful but the workers are few…?
2:15 The Lord took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
Our mandate to:
a) Work it
b) Take care of it
Until next time
