I read a few months ago a book titled "Pasture for Profit". The author of the book seemed to be a person who knew everything about the career he chose. The book explained everything about the value of pasture. It explained that pasture is an energy source. The author broke down the work of every nation and how it all started with the sun and its energy. Then he explained how the pasture is primarily the start of all the work because of the energy chain. Mankind is the most abundant of work energy resource. The work of a farmer who owns a pasture is of primary importance, because we have to consume the animals that need the pasture to produce energy. The feces of the animals who graze in pastures is a primary source of nutrients for the vegetables we eat. It takes 10 tons of manure per acre to renew the nutrients in soil for row cropping. There is close to a billion acres of Row crops in America. Thats not including the specialty crops, greenhouses, and organic farms that also supply us with vegetables. Over all thats alot of Bull S@#@. Basically the most important work is the Bull S@@#. One of the most important substances to our existance is Bull S@#$. In relation to all things created by man or God. Bull S@#$ is of more value to us then diamonds or Lear Jets.
My point is that Our own creations and devices as mankind has not really even a place on earth as high as Bull S@#$. The work of the Gospel has value to our soul. The Milk of the Word feeds our Soul. We can prosper more from our Faith in the Creator then faith in our own devices. The extreme stress the nations work causes is from the falsehoods and lies about mans place in creation. We would like to imitate the creator but to try and place ourselves higher in evolution by creating machines and devices is almost like Satan wanting a higher place in heaven before he was cast out. Which was the result of his trying to make himself a higher place then he ought. We need to Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and what God supplies for us each day and embrace what he created not what man created. Many people who don't believe in the Lord Jesus Christ become Adversary willing to perish for what they believe is important about thier own devices. As the Lord's Church we can't really be as the world and need to seek the Lord to learn his ways so we can be humble and not enslave ourselves to our own devices.
Galatians 6 (King James Version)
1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
2Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
3For if a man think himself to be something, when he
is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall
he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5For every man shall bear his own burden.
6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
17From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
18Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every
man that is among you, not to think of himself more
highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly,
according as God hath dealt to every man the measure
4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
