A Simple Discipline: Honor Your Mother Earth

SUNRISE 5-28-14 013 orig

Many people, even people of faith, have a mistaken idea about our relationship to the earth.  They seem to believe this planet and its resources are ours to do with as we wish.  Some of us still understand that we were placed in the “garden” to be caretakers, not to plunder and pillage its resources.

How can we forget that the earth is our mother?  The Biblical account of the creation of man says that God made man from the dust of the earth and breathed life into him.  If we say that God is our Father then indeed the Earth is our mother.  So why do we treat her so badly?  She nourishes us and sustains us although we are making it increasingly difficult for her to do so.  How long will we be able to continue to ignore that damage we have done to her and the impact that damage is having on our lives?

April is recognized as Earth Month, with Earth Day coming later in the month.  This month we will focus on the Earth and things we can do to care for her.  Let us honor our Mother, the earth and show her the respect and care she is due.  By doing this we also honor our Father God.

  1. Beautiful. This should be taught in school and children should be taught a pledge of allegiance to take care of what is sustaining them. ❤
