I’m ready for God to give us back the Garden of Eden, but he can leave the tree of knowledge of good and evil out of it; since it’s already ingrained in our brains, I don’t think we can go back. I want the bliss of living in paradise and the comfort of having a relationship with God, where he walks with me in the garden. I’ve tried to create that, but the weeds tend to take over since evil still exists. I know he walks with me in the garden every morning; I can feel it. I am in awe of His creation, especially when I find interesting foods you don’t often see in the produce market. All you have to do is open a seed catalog, and you will realize that what we eat barely scratches the surface of the foods he gave us. Have you ever seen a winged bean? I hadn’t until I grew it! I can’t wait to taste it! We should get used to exploring and tasting other plants that aren’t often grown commercially. God gave us so much more than we experience; break out of your comfort zone and try something new, even if you have to grow it yourself.
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:8-9
