Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.
12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
13 And there was evening, and there was morning — the third day.
How do I know God's love for us? Genesis 1:11-13 prove it. Man didn't come along until day six. But God prepared the way. Vegetation!
- Chocolate comes from the cacao tree.When a rotten mood hits, what makes me feel better? Chocolate. God knew he'd make a woman in three days--He made sure we would have something to delight us.
- Coffee comes from the coffee bush. How could I wake up in the morning and smell the roses without my jolt of caffeine. A strong cup of black java is ambrosia. A latte or cappuccino is divine. and some of you have to adulterate it with sugar?
- Sugar cane is also vegetation. Because of it, we can eat golden Oreos.
- And of course we have flowers. Any man knows the way to a woman's heart is with sweets and flowers shared over a steaming cup of coffee.
Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
Oh the immeasurable love of God!
