To begin with I will go to the beginning, Genesis 1:1-5.

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

On the 2nd day God created a dome and called it sky.

On the 3rd day God made earth and sea he also brought fourth vegetation.

On the 4th day God made 2 great lights the greater one to rule the day and the lesser one to rule the night.

On the 5th day God created birds and sea creatures.

On the 6th day God created wild animals and creeping things, he also made man and woman.
God saw everything that he made and indeed it was very good.

Why do I say all that? Because it shows that it took him 6 days to create it all and he wants us to care for all that he made in those 6 days.

Psalm 148 is basically all about what God made but there are some parts I would like to point out. Like, praise him, sun and moon praise him, all you shinning stars. It is saying that God has control over everything. It also says “fire and hail, snow and frost, storm wind fulfilling his command!” That again says he has control over everything even some of the bad things. “Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars! Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds!” It is saying what living things God made.

Also the Beatitudes have some meaning to my point. The one Beatitude is “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”, it says if you don’t pollute you will inherit the earth.

Now to the point, the point is that we need to take care of the earth and as I said earlier it took God 6 days to create it all, he wants us to care for all he made in those 6 days. From my point of view if we can’t live here the whole human race goes bye bye. I like the earth because it give me a place to play baseball, football and play with my new puppy Reggie. I like looking out my window and seeing the green trees and green grass too.

In the movie WALL-E the planet is full of trash so the people live in space and the passengers get fat and sit around all day because robots do everything. Who wants that to happen?
To make sure that does not happen we can reduce, reuse, and recycle.
We can reduce our trash by using reusable glass and plastic instead of disposable items.
One easy way to reuse items is to donate to the church garage sale or treasure trove at the Church Bazaar. Some recycling ideas are we can recycle more things, use more recyclable things and you can make a compost pile out of food rinds, yard waste and banana peels.

In the Garden of Eden, God made many trees including the forbidden tree. To help God, we can plant trees. Today as we leave we will all be receiving a packet of wild flower seeds to take home and plant. Remember when you go home, don’t get tricked, by the serpent from the Garden of Eden. He will tell you to eat from the Pollution Tree like Eve ate from the Forbidden Tree, but listen to God and don’t eat from the Pollution Tree.
