“And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed…to work it and keep it” (Genesis 2:8,15, ESV).
We all have a purpose. We all have something inside of us, urging us to be more.
We all want our lives to mean something, to stand for something. Sometimes we figure it out early on, and sometimes we have to fight tooth and nail for years until it becomes clear to us.
For Adam and Eve they were placed in a garden, where they were tasked with its upkeep and protection. It really was a cherry deal. It was like joining a team project after all of the hard work was done. God planted the garden!
One summer between my sophomore and junior year of college I worked on a farm. The things that had to be done to a field before we could even consider planting anything was ridiculous! It was a lot of difficult work. Adam and Eve had it easy.
I’ll have more on this on Friday’s post. Today I’d like for us to be mindful of what God has created us, as individuals, to accomplish. Where are your natural gifts? Do you know your life’s purpose? What are you passionate about?
Blessings on your week!
