Happy Earth Day! Today is a day when we need to remember that God is the one who created the earth and we need to take care of it as much as possible. God has called us to be good stewards. Luke 12:42-44 (NKJV) says:

42 And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44 Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has.

Here are some ways to be good stewards of God’s creation:

1. Conserve energy by combining different errands into one trip, turning off lights and appliances when not in use (including electronics such as computers, etc.)

2. Recycle everything that you can including cans, paper, old electronics, etc.

3. Use compact fluorescent lights (CFL) throughout the house which uses less electricity and last longer than traditional bulbs.

4. Treat everything as if you own it…because God does.

5. Don’t litter and pick up trash on the ground if you see it.
