Hurt not the earth,
neither the sea, nor the trees....
It's because I'm a Christian that I care about our environment. Honestly. I got in a debate with someone about this the other day. Let the stupid Democrats "go green" if they're so concerned, they said. I blinked, then gasped. But you're a Christian! I argued. God created this world and then put man over its care. This is more a spiritual issue than a political one!
I feel very strongly about this. Otherwise I'd be too busy to recycle. To compost. To reuse. To try to save energy. To plant a garden. It's just that as a young girl, I was taught: the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it (Psalm 24:1). It's His creation. We're just caretakers. So take care of it.
Aerating compost. Yick.
So today's Earth Day. There are so many little things we can be doing to see to God's beautiful world. And surely it's important. Especially to Christians. Especially now.
