Earth Does as Told

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Last summer Brenda, one of my get-down girls (that’s what I call the women who help me go to bed in the evenings), anyway, Brenda had fun growing a garden. She raised tomatoes of every shape, size, taste, and color. One evening when she was helping me, I asked what she enjoyed most about her hobby, and she replied with a wry smile, "Then God said, 'Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind on the earth.' And the earth did as it was told… again." I loved the way Brenda put that; it made me appreciate how the earth obeys its Creator time and again (oh, that we would be as obedient)! So today and throughout the week, may the spiritual fruit in your life be of every shape and size, helping all those around you taste and see that our great Creator is truly good!
