The Garden of Eden
2 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
4 This is the [a]history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6 but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
God could not provide any plant on earth and neither the rains to fall before man was created because the land had to be tilled. God ensured man was created in order that he till the land, hence man came first before the plants and rains. This was done to make sure that there was a manager or cultivator of the land so that God’s mandate would not go to waste or rather go unfulfilled.
In line with the above, the following apply to our everyday lives;
- Where there is no management, there is no growth
- God withholds things, if there is no management
- Whatever you mismanage, will die
- God only gives what we can manage, not what we pray for
To be an organised person, whether male or female, you need to adhere to the above principles.
We give all glory to God. Mbiri kunaJesu.
