The Bible and Farming

In some cultures, working in the sand or mud is considered a lower level or dirty job. There is no dignity in workers who toil in fields like farmers. God created Adam from the dust.
1) God as our model: God created the Garden of Eden; hence he is the first farmer. God also placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and commanded them to till the land and have dominion over it. God also gave all plants, trees, fruits and seeds as food for human beings. (Genesis 1:28, 29) After the Fall, Lord commanded that Adam would have to work in the land, with his sweat he had to eat his food. (Genesis 3:17-19) God is the owner of earth, humans are just care takers or stewards of the earth.
2) Farming exists as humans exist: After global flood, Lord promised that there would be farming as long as the earth exists. “While the earth remains, seed-time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22) Lord has promised to bless our land. (Deuteronomy 28:8)
3) Distribute, not hoard: In the Parable of Rich Fool, Lord Jesus taught that hoarding is futile, sharing with poor is essence of stewardship. (Luke 12:13-21)
4) People of faith: Farmers ought to be people of faith. Those who wait for perfect weather may never plant or harvest. (Ecclesiastes 11:4) Those who are lazy in the right season, will not plough or plant. (Proverbs 20:4) Planning and hard work brings rich dividend for a farmer. (Proverbs 21:5) A sluggard does not care for the field, hence it is full of weeds and thorns. (Proverbs 24:30)
5) Hard work: Christians should be like hard-working farmers. (II Timothy 2:6) Lazy and sluggard Christian workers are not fit for ministry. Paul himself was a model for hard work. (I Corinthians 15:10) Hard working farmers partake in the harvest of crops. Our labour of love for the Lord will be rewarded in eternity.
Do I sow in tears to reap with joy? (Psalms 126:5)
