|Planting Flowers with Atticus|
I find it interesting that mankind began in a garden. The first man was a gardener. God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden and gave him complete freedom there, but along with that freedom, he also gave him the responsibility to tend and care for the beautiful garden that God had created for man and for his helpmate, Eve. We all know the story of how the serpent came to Eve and tempted her. By the end of the day, both Adam and Eve had sinned. Sin shattered God’s perfect creation, and man was separated from God because of his desire to act on his own. This act of sin affected all of creation and to this day, we must toil as we work to grow fruit, vegetable and flowers.
