“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality.”  —Colossians 3:23-25 As believers, we must not be tempted to try to compartmentalize our lives. There is no church life and then our farm operation. R.C. Sproul wrote about this very idea. “We do not segment our lives, giving some time to God, some to our business or schooling, while keeping parts to ourselves. The idea is to live all of our lives in the presence of God, under the authority of God, and for the honor and glory of God.” I claim that this must include our agriculture. Consider those words carefully. The agriculture that Christians practice is done so on God’s canvas using His resources under His ownership and should be done so with the primary purpose to honor and glorify God. Consider that next time you fire up your tractor or grab your hoe.  ]]>
