All those years ago, God created the heavens and the earth. As we listen to the television and read things on the computer, we learn that the earth is deteriorating, the icebergs are melting. What can we do to ensure that the wonderful world that God created can still support us as we live in this day and age, and for future generations? Can we be more careful about the way we get rid of our garbage? Can we ensure that the pieces of garbage that are compostable are put in the compost? Can we ensure that the paper is either burned or sent to the blue box? Can we pray for the things that God wants for us and keep our land safe?
We need to remember that God created the heavens and the earth and that if we look after the earth, we will be going a long way to keeping it safe for the generations that follow us.
Gracious and loving God, please help us to remember that this wonderful earth we live on was a gift to us from you and that we should remember to take care of it. Amen. — ES
