God's Ideal for Thee and Me
by Berni Dymet
Wouldn't it be great if we could live out our lives in a tropical paradise, a five-star resort, where it never rains. We get up in the morning. Have breakfast. Wander down to the beach - lie in the shade, go swimming … waiters to serve us the pina coladas and bring lunch.
Then we'd wander up for dinner. That'd be the life!!!
I guess that's what the garden of Eden was like: A perfect paradise. Not a worry in the world … endless R&R.
Man - that would be the life!
And that's why I was so shocked when I read Genesis, Chapter 2, verse 15 … have a listen:
The LORD God took the man, Adam, and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.
Adam had a job: to till and to keep the garden. See, it turns out that God's ideal plan for us was not only peace all around, not only a perfect relationship with Him. God's ideal plan for us … includes work.
