Creation Care 3

Genesis 2:4-9 & 15

These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created.  At the time when God made the heavens and the earth, there was still no wild bush on the earth nor had any wild plant sprung up, for God had not yet sent rain to the earth, and there was no human being to ill the soil.  Instead, a flow of water would well up from the ground and irrigate the soil.  So God fashioned an earth creature out of the clay of the earth, and blew into its nostrils the breath of life. And the earth creature became a living being.  God planted a garden to the east, in Eden, and placed in it the earth creature that had been made. Then God took the earth creature and settled it in the garden of Eden so that it might cultivate and care for the land.
