“You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth and wine to gladden the heart of man, oil to make his face shine and bread to strengthen man’s heart.”
Psalms 104:14-15 ESV
Agriculture is a major industry in the United States. Having grown up on a family farm, I appreciate all the labor and “luck” that goes into the production of food crops. Many of us take for granted that the grocers will have an abundance of food whenever we desire it. Over the years, the number of small farms have decreased, particularly in my region of the country. We rely primarily upon the large farms for our food production. Our technology and innovation have allowed this transition to mass production; but lest we forget, God has blessed us with the necessary conditions for crops to flourish.
