Good Land

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. Deuteronomy 8:10  

Many are the times we forget to be grateful for the good land God has given us. Sometimes when we go to the market to buy food; we don’t take time to think about where that food has come from or even to be grateful that we have it and have the ability to consume it. Let’s always remember that God has blessed us with good land that we can utilize for different things. We can till the land, grow crops, harvest, and enjoy the food we get from the land. We get satisfied with the production of our labour when we see the results of our work has gone well. Even when we presume some land is bad, it always has its own good purpose for utilization.

Good land is essential for our well-being. To live a good life and to stay healthy we need to eat good food and live in a place where the land is good. “When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you” Deuteronomy 8:10. There are many people who are hungry and who go without food and they do not even have land to produce anything. But, for those of us who have been blessed with good land and a good life and we have more than enough we ought to reach out to those in need and help them out.

Take into consideration the things that surrounds you that God has created and everything you see displays God’s greatness and provision. Praise be to God for the good land he has given us.
