How many of us know that the bible talked about taking care of our environment along time ago. God Created this earth and he left it in our care. What He created was beautiful and expected it to stay that way.
For a long time we have remained quiet about the environment but I think things are slowly changing. I believe more and more Christians are starting to take note of what is going on and realizing they have to do their share in taking care of this planet he created for us. For many years the church leaders and scientists seemed far apart on this issue but lately they are coming closer to an agreement that something has to be done and many Christians are getting involved in doing what we feel God has always wanted us to do.
We are in stewardship over this planet. Several versus pertain to that thought.
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
We are to care for the earth and take care of the animals in it.
6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
What an honor God bestows upon us when he wants us to take care of the things he has created for us. We should be grateful to God for giving us this honor.
