Happy Earth Day - Take Care of Creation

Although today is Earth Day and the end of the Earth Hour to Earth Day campaign, I hope everyone continues to seek ways to live more gently on the earth and not return to old habits.

For Christians who don't believe that we should care for the planet, here are some Bible verses to get you thinking about creation care:

"God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good." (Genesis 1:31)

"The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." (Genesis 2:15)

"The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof..." (Psalm 24:1)

"In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind." (Job 12:10)

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. (John 3:16)

"...for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof." (I Corinthians 10:26)
