Happy Earth Day
April 23, 2012 9 Comments
Let’s be thankful to the One who provided the earth for us to enjoy – do not thank the earth itself, for it is a creation just like us.
Let’s focus on cleaning up the real pollution in this world – sin.
Be it melting ice caps or a clogged ozone, the world will end in God’s timing, just as He conducts it. We can try all we want, but we can’t stop it.
As honorable as it is to save the whales and the trees, it’s even more honorable to save unborn children, and open our homes to those who are hungry and alone.
Care for and tend to the earth just as God commands. But don’t try to save it. One day the earth will see its last sunrise, then in the twinkling of an eye, it will awaken as a new creation. For on that day Christ will reveal the new Heaven and the new Earth, preserved for those who love Him. Celebrate Earth Day as you would Easter – in anticipation of the day when Christ returns, making all things new once and for all.
“In the wilderness, prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah 40:3
