Thought for today
Care for our planet and Climate Justice are the focus of Christian Aid Week 2021.
It’s easy to take our precious planet for granted and forget how unique it is - the only place anywhere, as far as we know, that possesses the exact circumstances to enable not just LIFE, but OUR sort of life... air to breathe, water to drink and just the right amount of gravity to keep us grounded.
Our Christian faith tells us all creation comes from God. God gives us the run of the earth and expects us to take care of it and all that live on it with us.
Religious and ethical issues aside, it’s an absolute no-brainer that we should look after it and preserve it. It’s in our own self-interest to stop ruining it with greedy consumption and pollution. There is ‘no planet B’!
Faith in God and caring for our world are inseparable.
