Lessons from My Garden

God's Purpose for Gardens

Beauty (pleasing to the sight)
Nutrition (good for food)
Life (tree of the knowledge of good and evil)
Genesis 2:8-9 8. And the LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9. And out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Lessons from My Garden-

1. Look at what grows well in others’ gardens
Who do you look up to spiritually? What are the spiritual disciplines they practice to bring stability and glory to God in their lives?

2 Timothy 2:2, Psalm 119:165, 1 Corinthians 10:31

2. Ask a friend or stranger- most are willing to share their gardeneing successes and failures
Who is your Paul or Timothy?

Philippians 4:9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you.

3. Plan for growth
What is your plan to grow in Christ? How are you sharing what you know about God? Matthew 28:20; Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

4. Be patient- it may take a season or two for growth, but you must keep up the maintenance!
Psalm 1:1-3, Delight in the law of the Lord, day and night, and your leaf shall not wither!
Galatians 6:9 And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap, if we do not grow weary.

And always remember... Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.
