Daily Prompt: Earth


I am one of many thousands that believe that all the universes and our little planet earth was created by God.  I know I was put here on earth to be a servant to God.  One of my jobs is to provide a well kept planet.  I am thankful my little area of earth is filled with an abundance of healthy colorful trees, mountains and plants.  The air and water meets the standard healthy grade as per our Government.

It saddens me to see people in other countries wear masks to protect their lungs from the polluted air.  The water not safe to drink due to high levels of poisonous chemicals.  Plants are tainted with harmful substances that is unfit for human consumption.  Animals dying by poachers in order to provide for a sinful need.  Depletion of fish due to illegal means of catching.

If I were to see God now, I think I’d see tears of sorrow and disappointment as he looks out over earth.  A planet he created with love for our pleasure, contentment and unselfish needs.  This is not the first time he has seen greed take the place of his blessings.  All He ever wanted from us is to worship, love, obey, be righteous and give Him all the thanks and glory everyday, a simple request.  How easy it is for greed to devour our earth.

We must not be careless as we fullfill this charge.  Like the creator, we should care for the earth responsibly and lovingly.
