Creation Care

Adam was called to be a steward of the environment in which he was placed. God didn’t tell him to exploit it, to use it for his own selfish means, and to get out of it all that he could. Instead, he is told to work it and protect it.

Because God created this world to be a home, not only for us but for many other plants and animals, and asked us to be its stewards, we have a responsibility to respect and care for our environment in such a way as to bring God glory.

If anything, as Christians who believe that this world and the life and resources on it are gifts from God, we should be at the forefront of seek­ing to take care of it.

This week’s Scriptural Pursuit discussion focuses on our collective responsibility to care for God’s creation.
