God’s people lived in an agricultural society. He always
used those references to teach His lessons, and His Son continued that in His
time here on the earth. Sowing and reaping, working in vineyards, weeding the
field, and cursing an unfruitful fig tree became the basis for lessons easy for
all to understand.
Dene and her husband Keith have gardened for nearly 40
years, which has shown her why God’s prophets and preachers, including Jesus,
used so many reference to plants and planning – it’s only natural. She has
learned many lessons from her time with nature and shares them here. Join her
for a walk in the garden with God.
