Often I read passages that strike my curiosity and challenge my thinking--like today...
"No shrub had yet grown...no plant had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not made it rain and there was no man to work the ground." (Genesis 2:5 HCSB)
Mankind is directly linked to the core process of earth's growth and production. We are interconnected with God's global system.
God waited on the creation of humans before the plants began to grow. This amazes me...and gives me motivation to be more aware and active in the conversation and conservation of our planet.
I'm not a "tree hugger", but I realize I'm supposed to be "greener" than I am...because I'm connected to our planet by God's design.
Now...how will this affect my lifestyle and consumption?
