Today is Earth Day. A day created in 1969 to bring us into an awareness of the environment and our need to treat the Earth with care and protect it. In 2014, there are green buildings, houses, cars, etc. working to take better care of the resources we have on our planet. The Bible gives us God’s perspective on this planet. Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Isaiah 6:3 “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” (NIV) Our planet and its resources reflect our glorious, magnificent God. The Lord spoke to Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:28 ” And God blessed them and said to them. Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it (using all its vast resources in the service of God and man); and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.” (Amplified)
Is that how you feel about the earth? Do you see our vast resources as something to be used in the service of God and man? I think if we did and remembered that the whole world is filled with His glory we would be more reflective and careful with the earth God has so graciously given to us. Are you being a good steward of the earth’s resources? How can you be “greener” in your life and do your part to help honor God with this precious earth?
Have a blessed Earth Day and let me know things you are doing to protect and save the earth’s resources.
