About this Site
The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. (Gen. 2:8)
Gardens just don't happen, ground must be allotted, prepared; seeds and saplings planted, watered, tended to, and protected. As growth ensues nutrients must be provided, pruning must occur when necessary, and vigilance must be maintained against parasites and predators. All of life is a metaphor, material object lessons pointing to a spiritual reality - this do and live. Gardens just don't happen, they are purposed, take work, and need external blessing to prosper.
“...but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2Pet. 3:18b), working "out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." (Phil. 2:12b-13)
