Strikes Me Interesting – Taking Care of the Earth

We talk a lot about taking care of the earth and the environment. While the topic can be riddled with misinformation and conflicting political interests, it is interesting that we do realize we’re supposed to take care of our surroundings. On the one hand, it is logically in our best interests. On the other hand, it is God’s idea for us in the first place.

When we look at the beginning of humanity in Genesis 1 and 2, we find that this responsibility of caring for the earth was God’s idea. We humans need responsibilities, and God gave us plenty. We’re really good at ruining things though, but this doesn’t mean we can’t learn and do better. It doesn’t mean we aren’t still responsible for what we do with the things God gave us.

Now I’m not saying we need to go overboard and never touch anything again. We need the resources all over this planet, and God gave them to us to use. I am saying that we need to be good stewards of what God gave us, using things wisely. It is both a moral and logical thing to do.
