We Are Stewards of the Earth

Reflect

How does God exercise authority? Does God exploit us, leaving us broken and used? Or does he mend what is broken and bring forth new life? Just as God is over us, so should we be good stewards over creation.


Pray

Father,
o
ut of your communion of love,
l
ight bursts forth
from darkness,
and l
ife shimmers
in a dazzling array of beauty.

As you care for all your creatures,
g
ive me a heart to love them
as you do.

Let me give honor
to your handiwork,
b
y giving more
than I receive. Amen.


Act

Think of one small thing you may do to give back to the earth. Maybe plant a tree or clean up trash on the roadside. Find some way to show stewardship of God’s creation.
