The Corn Still Grows

From Blog12

The corn still grows
Green and serrated,
Aiming strongly for the sky
(In tassels, come July).
Yet it's seldom seen 'round here.
Farming's left to other places.
We grow more nail salons
And insurance agencies.

May there be abundance of grain in the land;
on the tops of the mountains may it wave;
may its fruit be like Lebanon;
and may people blossom in the cities
like the grass of the field!
--Psalm 72:16 ESV

The more we build huge cities, the less aware we are of God's effect on our lives. We no longer realize our dependence on his power, and are easily convinced man can control things, including global warming or food shortages.
