(Good) Friday - technical difficulties...

This would have been posted on Friday...but the hubby came down with the flu, so I figured I should focus on taking care of him. 

Think Sharp

This year, Earth Day and Good Friday fell on the same day.  Since I am a Jesus Freak who believes in good stewardship, here are my thoughts:

  • God values the earth:
    • In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Gen. 1:1)
  •  As humans, we are to take good care of the earth He put us on:
    • 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
          29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. (Gen. 1:28-30)
  • God values those on the earth more than the earth itself:
    • For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him would not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16);
    • Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
  • Recycling is great, but rebirth is even better:  
    • 4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” ... 10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things?...14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[f] 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”[g] (from John 3)
Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!
