Farming: Rooted in Faith

Farming is fueled by hard word but it is rooted in faith. That's because so much of what happens is out of your control. 

As I checked up on this field the kids were cutting today my mind went to this great hymn of yesteryear:

Here are some Bible verses that nicely complement this hymn:

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. 

The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose, and both will be rewarded for their own hard work.

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.

The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. 

The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to.

There should be no greater man or woman of faith than the farmer.
