Your Personal Grow-Pray-Study (GPS) Guide

My Least Favorite Part Of The Lord's Prayer
Become Zealous To Do Good

Work And Keep the Land


After completing this week's GPS, the big idea is to reflect on your role in your community. What actions or changes can you make to better "love where you live."

Day 1 (Monday): What's been the best work you've ever done or been a part of? What made it good?

Day 2 (Tuesday): Read Genesis 2:4-17. What stands out to you in this passage? How can we, as Christians, contribute to the flourishing and resources around us?

Day 3 (Wednesday): In Genesis 2:15, God places Adam in the Garden of Eden "to work it and keep it." Indeed, God, in His infinite creativity, could have created a garden so that it would take care of itself! Could you imagine it?!? Why does God put Adam (and you and I) in charge of "working and keeping the land?"

Day 4 (Thursday): It's obvious, based on Genesis 2:15, and the rest of scripture for that matter, that God has given us, His creatures, a responsibility to care for creation and our environment. How can we apply this principle to our communities today? How can we be good stewards of the land and resources around us?

Day 5 (Friday): Genesis 2:18-24 describes the creation of Eve as a helper and partner for Adam. How does partnership and community building relate to loving where we live? Where have you experienced great help as you have worked and served?

Day 6 (Saturday): Genesis 2:8 mentions the tree of life. Jesus gives us life through his death on a cross/tree (reference Deuteronomy 21:123, Galatians 3:13). How can we share this life with others? How can we share this life with those around us?
