Is the land where you live flowing with milk and honey? Is it blessed, or is it cursed?

What do you look for in a land? Are you happy where you are right now? Or does it need some work?

What kind of soil is under your feet, is it alive or dead, clay, silt or loam, or barren desert? Or is it rock? What grows there? Where does your water come from?

When God told Moses to take off his sandals cos he was standing on holy ground, why did He say this? Is Holy ground the kind you walk round on barefoot? Do you feel a connection with the land?

Lets discuss our relationship with the land God has given us to live on. So many people have fought over land and died for it that it must be something fundamental in US. After all people dont fight over the oceans or the stars in the sky. Maybe its because God made us from the dust of the earth?

The interesting thing is God told the Israelites their land would be of milk and honey.
He didnt say milk and meat (topic of another thread) but milk and HONEY. Where do we get honey from, bees, and how do bees get their honey? From flowers! So any land that has lots of flowers is good. :)
