Taking care of the earth

God gave Adam a very special job.  Adam got to name all of the animals that were created (Genesis 2:19), and take care of all of the beautiful place God gave him.  In this Garden of Eden, things were good, but God said they were not good enough until Adam had a helper.  Once Eve was created, things were as they should be.

Adam and Eve didn’t have to work hard in the garden to get the trees to produce fruit because the earth was still perfect at that time.  It never even needed to rain because God made water come out of the ground to make the plants grow.  Even though work wasn’t hard for the first humans, God gave them a job to do.

You were created with a purpose too.  You have a job to do that was given to you by God. It’s your own special calling, just like Adam and Eve had.  Jesus had His own special task on the earth too.  Do you know what it was?

Keep up the great work memorizing verses!  Genesis 3:20 “The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.”
