“…and there were no people to cultivate the soil.” (Genesis 2:5, NLT)
We are created to cultivate, to make fruitful.
In a perfect setting, the land still needed cultivation. Needed intentional effort, work, planning, and investment. How much more is needed in a world marred by sin?
Too often I take a passive posture to the land God gives me (my family, my community, my work, my church) instead of actively cultivating to bring forth all the potential of those I’m a part of.
Father, show me how to intentionally work, plan, and invest in the land you have given me.
