Genesis 1:21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
God’s creation is good, and as one of God’s marvelous creations we should consider more fully the impact we have on His creation. Good stewardship often means doing what is right, not what is easy. Simple things like using washable dishes versus styrofoam plates, recycling cans and plastic items, composting food and paper products can help save both money and the earth.
In Romans 1:20 (NIV) the apostle Paul tells us, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” God reveals himself to all the peoples of the world through His creation. When we misuse and abuse God’s creation we are basically saying we are not interested in knowing God. Today, take a moment to experience God’s creation. Listen to it, feel it, and get to know God better. I’m certain you will receive a blessing and be more at peace.
