    What does husbandry mean?
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 27:6
    Husbandry, as seen in 2 Chronicles 26:10 & 1 Corinthians 3:9, relate to farming, tending to crops or management of those affairs.

    In the 2 Chronicles passage, the people made Uzziah, a young man, a king in the place of his dead father, Amaziah. Uzziah is said to have been a cattleman & had vineyards. Thus stating that "he loved husbandry" = related to farming.

    In the 1 Corinthians passage, the apostle Paul had just been talking about people like himself or Apollos just being ordinary men & not to be revered & get a following. Rather they both, as for all believers, were appointed by God to perform ministry on Earth: he had a church planting ministry & Apollos helped build it up, but God brought the 'increase'. Again, these verses speak of the imagery of evangelism to the way farmers do their work in the field: the farmers were Paul & Apollos & we (those, the Church, built upon Christ the foundation Stone), are Gods 'husbandry' = the plants/crops that showed the work of those others & God bringing it all together.

    Sometimes good people die young. Jotham was only 41 when he dies and he did good in his life.

    Whatever you will be in this life is depended upon your preparation before your creator. The degree of your preparation determines the degree of your manifestation in any event of life.
