The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,

   the world and those who dwell therein.

                      (Psalm 24:1)

 

Texas billionaire Edward Bass financed the 1990 Biosphere 2 Project—an artificially closed, self-sustaining ecological system. Apparently after the first wheat harvest, the crew of the second mission had all the ingredients to make a pizza, but discovered the process would take four months. Early one morning, they deliberately compromised the project by ordering a pizza, opening the door and violating the closure. Indeed, the very best efforts to resupply life’s natural gifts cannot be humanly re-engineered. Yet, one intriguing image of God in the Bible is that of a Host providing resupply for those who belong to Him.
