The HEART of Foundations for Farming
Foundations for Farming (FfF) is founded on our Tri-une God. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” Jesus is the focal point and fulcrum of history. The Father sent His only Son to reveal Himself to us. Jesus said, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.” The Father gave Jesus all authority in heaven and on earth. Jesus is the ultimate reference point and expression of all truth and judgement.
FfF, with the Holy Spirit’s help, seeks to wholeheartedly follow Jesus’ perfect example in all of life. FfF recognizes God’s grace in that He doesn’t expect us to do this perfectly but rejoices when we turn to Him with all our hearts asking for the Holy Spirit to help us obey and do everything He taught us, in His way. “In His way” epitomizes Jesus’ implicit obedience to all that the Father told Him, His unconditional love, humility and unselfishness; and as such, are foundational building blocks for our attitude of heart in all that we teach and do in FfF. Because of God’s perfect love, holiness, sovereignty, omnipresence, omniscience and omnipotence, we seek to trust Him with all our hearts and seek not to lean on our own understanding, but to acknowledge Him in all our ways, so that he makes our path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6) “Seeking after God wholeheartedly” is also a cornerstone of FfF (Jeremiah 29:13).
The heart of FfF is encapsulated in the very first scripture God gave in the story of FfF in March 1980, which was 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God.”FfF seeks to glorify God in every aspect of farming and life.
