Genesis 1:9-12 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
God created the land and the sea, and it is very good! I love experiencing nature. Every area has its unique beauty. This week we had the privilege of touring fields in Arizona as we spent time with an extremely wise farmer. We learned how farming in the south has similarities to farming in the Midwest, but also when we began discussing growing seasons and water for the crops, there are many differences as well. To be called to be a servant of the land is a high calling. How do you care for this beautiful land created just for you?
God bless you as you care for the land and the seas!
