Are you anything like me? I am NOT a tree-hugger. While I don’t believe we should be wasteful and pollute the planet, I’m not one to give spotted owls or freshwater shrimp higher importance than human beings. I believe Earth Day is just another day that ultra-environmentalists use to brainwash our kids into thinking man controls everything. That’s just my opinion. But I’d like to turn this around. Parents and grandparents, let’s make Earth Day a day to celebrate God’s creation. Genesis 1:1, after all, says, “In the beginning, God”—He created the heavens and the earth. Let’s shout THAT from the rooftops. If earth was important enough to start Scripture with, shouldn’t we celebrate what God created?
