Sunday, April 22nd is “Earth Day.” There are events going on nationwide to celebrate “earth.” Everything from picnics, to planting trees, to festivals. One site says that Earth Day is a day to reflect on nature and what one can do to help better his little part of the planet.
I am all for taking care of what God has entrusted us with. We are His stewards. The only thing that concerns me about this “earth day” is that how it is approached.
Are we worshipping the earth in this celebration? God says that you shall have no other gods before Me.
What exactly is considered worship? According to one online dictionary, it means to show reverence and adoration for (a deity); honor with religious rites.
Are we honoring the “earth” with this day instead of the Creator? Just a thought…
