The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

Genesis 2:15-17

Luke 19:2-4 (ESV)

Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away.
Matthew 13:5,6

It is vital that the roots of your character are planted deeply. Surround yourself with wise council and stay accountable so that you don’t wither and scorch under pressure.
