Lots of the things we see on the harvest display are things that farmers have grown.
Now the Bible tells us that everyone, both young and old, has an important job to do.
“Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26)
In this verse God is saying that one of the jobs people are to do is to look after the world He has made.
This means not dropping litter, not destroying plants and flowers, and being kind to animas.
There’s something else God has made which we can look after – PEOPLE.
At harvest time, as well as thanking God for all the good things He has provided, it is also a good time to look after other people as we give food or money to help those who don’t have as much as you do.
