Today's passage of Scripture is Genesis 2:15-17 which reads: “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Today's quote about the Bible is from Charles Haddon Spurgeon. He said: "Some people like to read so many [Bible] chapters every day. I would not dissuade them from the practice, but I would rather lay my soul asoak in half a dozen verses all day than rinse my hand in several chapters. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up in your very soul, till it saturates your heart!"

Our topic for today is titled: "The Relationships of Creation (Part 3)" from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin.

We have made three observations about the world as it was originally made. 

It had a temperate climate.
Adam and Eve had a vegetarian diet.
Adam and Eve did not fight weeds, thorns, and thistles.

Here are 3 more observations about the world as it was originally made:

1. Adam and Eve had a close relationship with God. Apparently every evening, they walked through the garden with God. I sometimes try to imagine what one of those walks would have been like, and the best I can come up with is Adam and Eve telling God what they had seen and learned that day. In my imagination, their times together had the freshness and excitement of a five-year-old telling her daddy what she learned in school.
