Just look at you....you were dead on the hour again!! WTG!!
When Amanda Benavides was a sophomore at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California, she began to rethink her views on Christian stewardship of the earth. Amanda had grown up thinking that being conscious of the environment had nothing to do with her relationship with Jesus. All this changed when she was challenged to consider the Christians role in caring for the planetespecially how that relates to reaching the most needy in the world.
Our stewardship of the beautiful world God gave us, and our care for the people in it, express our reverence for God and is grounded in two biblical principles.
First, the earth belongs to God (Ps. 24:1-2). The psalmist praised the Lord for His creation and His ownership of it. The heavens, the earth, and all that are in it are His. He created it, He is sovereign over it (93:1-2), and He cares for it (Matt. 6:26-30). Second, God delegated the responsibility for the well-being of His earth to us (Gen. 1:26-28). This includes appreciation of and care for both nature (Lev. 25:2-5,11; Prov. 12:10) and people (Rom. 15:2).
This is our Fathers world. Lets show Him how much we love Him by respecting it and caring for the people who populate it.
Read: Genesis 1:26-28
Thanks, lauren, for our National Anthem....singing along.
Evening FRiend! Thanks for tonight’s great thread!
Hehehehe, not at all in nine years and then twice in one month. Way cool, LOL!
You take care and stay safe on your snowy and icy roads. We actually have freeze warnings tonight through the morning. Geez Louise, we should be in shorts by now.
Gonna say a quick HOWDY to all, then call it a day. My covers are a-calling!
Love to all!
I was administratively attached to the Naval Radio Receiving Facility, though I did not work there.
Evenin’ Angel Ma!
Hope you didn’t have too hard of a day today.
Still have the pretty white stuff on the ground?
We got some last night, but will be gone soon with temps nearly the mid 40’s soon.
