If we go back in time and end up in the Garden of Eden, there God placed man to be the overseer of His creation. And even though Adam and Eve sinned, they were still responsible for cultivating and enriching the land they were in.

Unfortunately, thousands of years later, mankind has overstepped its boundaries in his stewardship of the world. He does not only consume, but continues to destroy the beautiful world God made for him. Nature has sounded its warnings, showed alarming possibilities, and yet man only thinks of himself.

God requires His stewards, us, to be faithful, not to ourselves, but to Him and His creation. Like our own lives, we only have one home, this world. If we don’t take care of it, who will?
