Today is “Earth Day.” Good. Earth is currently our home. Take care of it.

The earth God provided us is a gift – a gift that helps sustain humanity. From my perspective, humanity doesn’t serve the earth; the earth serves humanity. As good stewards of the gift, we should - we must - conserve earth’s resources. The gift of God’s good earth should be cared for, not vandalized. Earth Day can be worthy, if we don’t participate in earth idolatry. Honor the gift Giver, not the gift.

Our Teacher instructed many years ago, “. . . replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Consider the words “replenish,” “subdue,” “dominion,” "earth." Protect our environment. Conserve our resources. Use resources wisely – but use them. Happy Earth Day.
