A farmer had a garden. He tilled it beautifully. He furrowed the ground. He planted the choicest seed. At long last, the garden began growing. Just as the corn stalks were high in the sky, and the vegetables were almost ripened, the farmer was visited by his pastor.
After a short visit over lemonade and his wife’s homemade pie, the farmer invited the pastor to see the garden he had grown. “um, I think you mean the garden that God has grown.” The farmer looked rather exasperated, but proceeded to show the pastor around his garden. “Look at the corn we grew this year! What a dandy crop” “I believe you mean the corn that the lord grew” his pastor countered.
After about ten minutes of this, the farmer grew weary. “Pastor,” he said ” I get your point. But now I hope you get mine”. Taking the ever smug pastor aside, the farmer said, “let me show you the garden that God grew” and he showed him a vacant field of weeds.
“I don’t mean to be sacriligeous, Pastor, I believe that lt takes a big God AND a hard working man to build a functioning Eden.”
