Wednesday is Earth Day, a helpful reminder of our responsibility to be good stewards of our world. But celebrating the greatness of our home planet can take on a dangerous slant if we leave out one key element.
The Apostle Paul writes in the first chapter of Romans, "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator."
As we celebrate Earth Day and contemplate the grandeur of this planet, it should remind us that we are part of the creation, and move us to worship the Creator. For in the beginning the universe was formed, the earth was created, and man was given life for one express purpose - to give glory to God, and to point to His greatness, power, and majesty.
The One who created the Heavens and the Earth is the God of the Bible, and is not only our Creator, but our Savior and our Sustainer as well.
He alone deserves our worship and praise.
