we are God’s garden

“Rather, he [St. Ephrem] reminds us that everything comes from God and that without God’s constant nurture, nothing would be and nothing could grow.  ‘It is not the gardeners with their planting and watering who count,’ writes St. Paul, ‘but God who makes it grow.’ Indeed, we are not only ‘fellow-workers’ in God’s great garden; we ourselves are God’s garden (1 Corinthians 3:7-9).”arboretum white cabbage
