Keeping the Earth humming along in tune

June 13, 2011

God provides for mankind by keeping the Earth humming along in tune. This section of Psalm 65 captures both His husbandry and His fecundity.

9You visit the earth and water it;
You greatly enrich it;
the river of God is full of water;
You prepare their grain,
for thus You prepare the earth.
10You water its furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges,
softening it with showers,
and blessing its growth.

11You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.
12 The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills gird themselves with rejoicing.
13 The meadows are clothed with flocks
And the valleys are covered with grain;
They shout for joy, yes, they sing.

~ Psalm 65:9-13

The psalm can be taken apart so that each element is scrutinized. Maybe I will save that for another day. The big picture shows God looking after mankind by preparing and providing a garden.

I may be back to edit this, but for now, feel free to add to my word association game in the comments.

Attributes of God, as shown in this Psalm:

conservation, frugality, providence, thriftiness, land management, vitality

abundancy, fertility, fruitfulness, productivity, prolificacy, industry.
