Oh how I love fun times, sharing our backyard oasis with friends (who we consider an extension of our family). It is all about family. It was and is a God idea! Love the fact that four generations are represented in this photo.
Genesis 1:28 is not a commandment, but a blessing. It does not refer to what humans must do to please God, but to what God does for and through humankind. The text says, “God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply'” (RSV). The filling of the Earth is a gift of God’s wisdom and shows forth his glory as Creator.
God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28)
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.” (Isaiah 6:3)
