International Earth Day is meant to educate us about the earth’s problems. Will we clean up a local park or take our old computers to the land fill?
We could ask ourselves what we should do to commemorate earth day but it is more important to ask ourselves what we will do for the rest of the year.
Have we switched to energy saving light bulbs? Or stopped buying so much junk or throwing out even more? Do we recycle our tin cans or glass bottles? Well, do we?
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We only borrow it from our children.” -Native American Proverb
Actually we only borrow it from God…
In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1, AMP)
Prayer – Lord, help us to look after your earth as if it were our own. Amen
