Genesis 2:9 states that the Lord God made every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food to grow out of the ground. In other words, this verse describes that the Lord God made beautiful (pleasant to see) and fruitful (good for food) trees to grow out of the ground. Literally taken, this means that all that God planted was beautiful and needed for the sustenance of life.
Points to ponder:
The Bible counsels us to taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8). In other words, the Lord is pleasant to see and good for communion, just like the beautiful and food bearing trees, God planted. The Bible also teaches us that man shall not live by bread (physical food) alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). Jesus is THE Word of God who became flesh and dwelled amongst men (John 1:1, 14). Jesus is pleasant to all who seek to see him with eyes of faith and is the Word of God, good for communion (food) and necessary for the sustenance of life – eternal life with God (John 3:16). Have you seen (experienced) Jesus? Do you have communion with God?
Genesis 2:9 (KJV)
9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
