Genesis 2:15 (NASB) "Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it."He said he was done but I knew that God had other plans.While ministering to another man who had lost his will to live, I felt led to share with him today's verse. It simply states that God had placed man in the garden to cultivate it and keep it. Those are some huge responsibilities that still hold true today. We may not be in the garden of Eden but we are still in the world created by God and have a duty to keep pushing forward. The guy I was sharing with had been through a pretty rough patch but I kept sharing that God wasn't done with Him yet, he still had work to do. Finding ourselves without hope of tomorrow can be debilitating but if we start our day in His Word, walk by the Spirit and have other godly men to push and cheer us on, we can face another day. Don't let the despair of yesterday keep us from all that God has for us today! peace, tom
