May 1, 2010 - PRLog -- Read Psalm 24:1. What implications do these words have for us and how we relate to the world? As we look around at the conditions in our world, we need to ask the question, “What, if anything, can we do to improve the environment?”

We need to begin by reminding ourselves of the Lordship of God over the earth. We are not free of responsibility to Him and His created works. Not only the earth is His but the people also—we and everyone else. We have responsibility to Him for other people, as well as the rest of the earthly Creation. We can conserve resources.

One example is water. We can be thoughtful in using water. We can support efforts to provide clean water to those who do not have it. In certain parts of the world, lack of clean water is a very serious problem, leading to a tremendous loss of life.

We can follow the diet that the Lord has outlined for us. If more people were on a vegetarian diet, there would be more food to go around because it takes a lot more natural resources to sustain a meat-eating diet than it does a vegetarian one.

We can care for the plants and trees that we have responsibility for. This will assist in maintaining clean air.

To whatever degree we can, we should seek to reduce the level of carbon emissions, which is increasingly becoming a world-wide concern due to the potentially dangerous impact to the environment caused by carbon emissions.

By being good stewards of the earth, by seeking to take care of the environment, by not hoarding natural resources for ourselves, by being willing to share with others out of our own abundance (when we have it), we can improve the daily life of those who need our help. As Christians, as those who profess to follow the Lord Jesus, we are obligated to help those in need.

Read Matthew 25:34–46. How might our stewardship of the earth in some way play a role here in doing what Jesus asks us to do?

Here are some other verses that also could apply to this issue.

*Genesis 1:12, *Genesis 1:26, Leviticus 25:23-24, Job 12:7-10 *Psalms 104:25-30 *Psalms 115:16, Isaiah 11:9, Isaiah 24:4-6, Isaiah 43:20-21, Jeremiah 2:7, Ezekiel 34:2-4, Colossians 1:16-17, Revelation 11:18

  1. Do you know some other versus that relate to this issue?
  2. The issue of the environment, especially the question of global warming, has in   recent years come to the forefront of the news. What is the response of your nation, community, and church to these issues?
  3. How should a Christian, someone who believes that God did create the world, relate to questions of the environment differently than someone who believes we are here as products of pure chance alone?
  4. How can and should the day of rest play a role in our concern for the environment? How does a day of rest help us be better environmentalists?
  5. If Jesus is coming back soon, as we believe, should we really be all that concerned with the environment? Justify your answer.
  6. Do some research, if possible, on the negative health effects that damage to the environment is causing in various parts of the world. What about in your own community? What role could and should your church take in this area? How might you be able to use any activism here in outreach?
  7. What are ways, even small ways, you could make some lifestyle changes that could impact the environment for good? How much self-sacrifice would it take on your part?
