God’s intentions from the beginning were quite clear to Adam and Eve. They were to live in God’s enjoyment and to multiply. Now the meaning of multiplying here is twofold. One is the natural multiplying of mankind. The second is that of another kind.
God design of man’s habitation on earth should be a clue for us to look at. First, look out your window and just be amazed at what God has made. From where I sit, I can look out my window and see the awesome site of the majestic mountain of Pike’s Peak!! WOW!!
Another aspect of our surroundings is that Adam was in charge of the Animals. Let’s just say here and now that being in charge of the animals is just an awesome responsibility from God. But also that it shows that gave us the ability to sustains us in a physical way, food. God gave us instant food with animals( sorry for you that are vegetations, you can eat the green stuff in the garden), But if you will notice that God did not give us just one animal of one kind, but two. This is significant in so many ways. He was going to take care of us for along time down the road, as long as we kept up our responsibility of taking care of the animals.
His plan was to be internal not temporal.
We can now transfer this concept to mankind. God’s ways are good in the largest sense of the word. If we are to survive in this world, or God’s Kingdom, we should follow His example. God’s 2nd meaning of multiplying is our responsibility of sharing God’s ways with our family, so that it may be shared with the next generation. Can you imagine if this would of happened with all God’s children?
God’s Truth multiplied is Awesome!!! This should be our goal as Father and Mother’s.
