the gift of earth

wheres your focusDo you ever feel there is so much in the world now that is not natural?

Many are responding in extreme ways…some for the good and others…well…

The highest heavens belong to the Lord,
but the earth he has given to man.
Psalm 115:16

In the beginning God gave us the earth and asked us to “fill it and subdue it.”

Often its one word that grabs me. Today it was subdue.
Control – Overtake – Defeat – Conquer
Seems pretty forceful and yet we seem so fearful of this earth.

No resolution – just some thoughts.

Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth. ~Henry David Thoreau
(sorry Henry….)

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money. ~Cree Indian Proverb
