Stewardship is the real GREEN
Let’s look at when God gave Adam the job of stewardship and dominion over the land and animals…right from the git-go!
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
We are to be good stewards of what God has put us in charge of, but not worship the earth or even humanize it by referring to it as “mother earth.” There is no “mother earth” only Father God.
I’m refusing to call myself green, because God actually made me a nice beige with yellow undertones.
I like that best!
A good beige with yellow undertones steward,
PS: does anyone know where I can get some reusable grocery bags that say “Stewardship is the real GREEN” ? I would LOVE to take those to the market…they would be a good way to start a conversation!
