One Response to “Human Vocation: Subdue the Earth”

  1.   Mike Hendricks Says:

    I’ve grown to like this idea of subdue, and bringing order out of chaos more and more. After all, God planted a “garden” in Eden, not a jungle or brier filled woods. A garden is a place where plants and such have been ordered out of chaos. It’s similar to Paul’s instructions on worship in 1 Corinthians 14, highlighted by his comment that “God is not a God of disorder, but of peace,” from verse 33.
