Earth Day – day set aside to remind us to take care of the Earth and help provide protect for the environment. God gave us the Earth! We need to take care of it! Everyday!
Held annually each April 22.
How can anyone deny there is a creator when they see all that is around us. The Bible tells us that no one is without excuse. Just the fact that we are a creation and every thing around you is a creation is proof enough there is a God. See Romans 1:18-32.
Even Psalm 14:1 says only a fool says there is no God. I do believe that creation is proof of a creator. Something couldn’t have came from nothing. There had to be an intelligent design behind all of creation.
Plus reading the Book of Genesis is a great way to read the creation story and the starting of our World and Earth. Take some time to read the whole book of Genesis and learn about the creation and more.
Some people take the day to plant trees and other plants. Some take the day and clean up trash and litter.
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970.
No matter how you celebrate Earth Day, make sure you give God thanks for the beautiful Earth he has blessed us with. A Day to honor God and thank God for this beautiful Earth that we live in.
Did you know that the word “Earth” is in the New King James Version 902 times according to BibleGateway.com
God gave us the Earth to take care of it. Genesis 1:28 and Psalm 115:16 tells us this. There are several others verses through out the Bible that tells us about being stewards of the Earth. We should take care of the Earth every day, not just one day of the year.
There is no Mother Nature in the Earth it is Father Creator, God! God controls everything including the weather. Saying Mother Nature does is giving god like qualities to something and saying you don’t trust or believe God is the one in control. You are then forming an idol.
