We’re supposed to be taking care of God’s beautiful creatures. πŸ•πŸˆπŸ¦‰

When God created everything and declared it “good,” they were placed there to be enjoyed and not destroyed. Unfortunately, we litter everywhere causing deaths of not only flowers, trees, and sea creatures, but also wildlife. As we see in Genesis 2:15, God commands us to keep and care for the earth. We’re stewards of the earth and therefore, we must protect it. Throughout the Bible, we read of God’s compassion and love for His creatures, yet, we tend to find so much animal cruelty by our hands.

If we’re using and abusing the earth, we need to stop for God will not leave us unpunished (Revelation 11:18).

The fires in Australia were unfortunate, but how the locals came to the rescue of surviving wildlife, was also a reminder of how we should be caring for His creatures.Β 

We have dominion over the earth. Let us stop misusing it and care for it as God intended when He placed man in Eden. The earth is not ours to do as we please. God is the Creator and Title Holder (Psalm 24:1) and He’s going to hold us responsible for how we care for it. Remember, the earth is our home, too. God didn’t create a earth so beautiful for us to pollute, plunder, strip, and burn.Β

  1. Amen! Your discussion reminds me of the stewardship practiced by Native American culture long ago. They respected the Creation and only took what they absolutely needed for survival. They wasted nothing.

    I remember a TV commercial from the 1960s with a “Keep America Beautiful” theme. A reverant Native American was used in the commercial. At the end of the final shot, there is a tear falling down his face. Here’s the link to the video.

    1. Thank you for your comment; I utmost appreciate it. I’ve always loved the Native American culture; we can learn so much from them and yes, I do remember that commercial! When I was younger, it used to be in rotation on local TV in the 90s. Thank you for sharing the video. πŸ’™
