Earth Day Reflection

flowersCurrently, I’m sitting in a lawn chair on my porch with my sleeves rolled up taking in the sounds of the neighborhood. Every once in a while a bird will wander close enough to see what’s going on with the human near its tree. The grass is green and there are flecks of yellow on some of the bushes across the street. A white butterfly is testing its wings against the light breeze.

Life is good because God’s creation is awesome.

For Christians this should be the impetus for celebrating Earth Day. There are plenty of reasons why people make this day special, and a lot of them are political; however, today I don’t really care because the sun is sneaking out behind the clouds and making my day bright.

‘Hallelujah’ just doesn’t seem like a good enough word when I think of the scope and bredth of what God gave us.

You’ll hear a lot about stewardship this week, and that’s a good thing because for the most part we could all stand to live a little more intentionally when it comes to loving and serving one another through the proper care of our resources. But today after all the hype and festivities, I urge you to go outside (even if it’s raining) and worship God for what you see in front of you.

Praise the LORD, my soul.
LORD my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.

The LORD wraps himself in light as with a garment;
he stretches out the heavens like a tent

and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.
He makes the clouds his chariot
and rides on the wings of the wind…
