EDEN REVISITED

Leave a comment

Lord, when international officials
sit at tables to discuss things,
we see lovely flower arrangements.
Some people in every country
enjoy the beauty of flowers.
Why can’t those people influence
the leaders or be the leaders?
We don’t need more irritations
that lead to war. The world
has become a dangerous place.
Lord, soften the hearts
of the leaders of the world.
If, as your followers, our sins
have been forgiven, why can’t we
return to the Garden of Eden
and enjoy the flowers?

Genesis 1:11:
Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so.

Luke 24:45-47:
Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.”
