God’s Word offers numerous references to gardens, healthy growth, weeds, fruit, harvest, etc. Plant a real garden with your children this spring as you teach them these valuable scripture verses.
While you are planting chat about Creation. God spoke life into being with His words. Planting a garden, waiting, weeding, tending, and enjoying the bounty take much time. God created something out of nothing quickly, and He created such varieties! Show your children how amazing God is with your garden.
While you are tending chat about Spiritual Fruit. Our spiritual fruit grows as we become less selfish and more Christ-like. Healthy plants grow with sunshine, air, and water. Show your children healthy plants vs unhealthy plants. Point out weeds and ask them what might be some “weeds” in their own lives.
While you are harvesting chat about Giving. A believer’s life is about serving others. God so loved the world He gave His one and only Son. Give your wonderful harvest to friends and neighbors to share in the joy of your beautiful garden.
No giant farm for garden space? Think smaller. You can plant herbs, a tomato plant, or a few peppers in small areas. Seeds cost much less than the actual vegetable at the supermarket. Use a spring garden to teach your children hands-on applicable lessons from the bible.
