Day 6: The Purposeful Gardner
God was the very first gardener! In the beginning, we find that He loved to create and watch things grow. God’s nature is built around growth; He can’t help Himself, it’s just who He is! As a Creator, His very nature is to plant for the purpose of growth.
Our ability to surrender to God as the chief Gardener of our hearts and lives is vital to our personal development. Like the plants of the earth, our purpose is to grow, mature and produce fruit at the hands of the Master Gardener. He nurtures us with the light of knowledge and the water of love, giving us all we need if we want it. God is a Gardener at the highest level. He is a Master at what He does. The incredible thing is that He doesn’t just tend to the garden of our lives, He provides the environment and the elements that help us to be fruitful. He is not only the Gardener, but He is the Sun — the power that gives us the energy to grow and mature.
