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.
Father, out of your communion of love light bursts forth from darkness,
life shimmers in a dazzling array of beauty.
As you care for all your creatures give me a heart to love them as you do.
Let me give honor to your handiwork by giving more than I receive.
What is one small thing you can do to give back to the earth? Perhaps plant a tree or clean up trash on the roadside? Choose some way to show your stewardship of God’s creation.
