As I sat in my LaZBoy, feeling the pain of a full day spent working the yard, I wondered why I felt so good. My muscles and joints do not feel good — they are complaining about getting back to work after a winter off.
But my soul feels a sweet sense of satisfaction.
Then I remembered: God’s first command to people was to manage the earth he entrusted to us. Today I was part of that “Prime Directive” in a very real way; and it feels good (except the lower back!).
