Bahan Alkitab: Genesis 1:26-28; 2:8-15
God made the whole wide world, e.g. the sun, the moon, the stars, the plants, the beautiful flowers, the rivers, the animals and many others. What happen if there is a plant and the plant is never watered?
God created man in his own image. God blessed Adam and Eve, whom God made to be special and different from the animals, told them to be in charge of all his creations. As such we have a duty to take care of God’s creation as well.
The whole wide world belongs to God. God has entrusted his creations. If the ecosystem lost its balance, detrimental things such as pollution and destruction of the nature could take place. At times, we human beings forgotten that the world belongs to God and we are entrusted to take care of it. Imagine if you have a wonderful toy, your friend would like to borrow it from you. When you lent it to your friend, your friend used a marker and scribbled all around it. How would you feel?
Therefore, it is only right to maximise our potential that is given by God to take care of the world. We cannot be irresponsible or lazy, at the end of the day. It is only right if we glorify God through our actions. Today we learnt to glorify God by taking care of this world and his creations.
Know that the Lord is God.
