You Gotta Love the Garden–Genesis 2 Part 2


God spared no expense to make the Garden a great place to host life.  In that time before sin entered, God made endless supplies for food, plentiful water supplies, and the ability to have life.  All the animals ate from the garden, but, men would have the choice of foods.  In the center of the garden, God placed the tree of life ad the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  He provided 4 rivers to keep the garden watered and fertile–it was truly an amazing place.
If we, as his children, would simply remember that it has always been God’s desire that we have full, meaningful and peaceful lives; then, it would be easier to quietly and humbly trust him and follow his lead.  Sadly, the world does everything to make us overlook the love and care God has taken to make our lives great.  It tries instead to separate from God and do things independently.  It is a slap in God’s face.  He only wants the best for us–our lack of trust, sadly only hurts us–it does not free us.  We need to take stock of God’s creation and care ad compare it to man’s failed attempts to make life better–Given the choice, I think any reasonable person would agree, God’s stuff is far more amazing!!!
God Bless You

This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth[a] and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, but streams[b] came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin[d] and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.[e] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
