Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it (Genesis 2:15).

Today is International Forest Day’s Celebration; a day set aside by the United Nations Organization to celebrate the importance of forest worldwide which is part of man’s environment. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that after God had finished creating the world into a beautiful paradise; He put man in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it. This indicates clearly that it is man’s duty to take good care of his environment. Therefore, it is the duty of every Christian to take good care of his environment daily.

According to the creation’s story, the Bible tells us vividly that God created the forest and man’s environment on the third day and declared that it was good (Genesis 1:13). That is why the Bible tells us thus, “And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:12). Taking good care of the environment is very good in the sight of God; therefore, a Christian should never join the devil in destroying God’s environment entrusted into his care.

God, our Father is the Creator of heaven and earth. The Bible tells us that He created man in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:26); He entrusted man with full right and control. In fact, it is man’s duty to take good care of his environment because he was created in the image and likeness of God. Anyone who fails to take good care of his environment has disappointed God and such a one is a failure. Of course, a Christian should never disappoint God by joining alliances with Satan in destroying his environment. Happy International Forest Day’s Celebration!

Daily Tip: God has entrusted you with His creation; therefore, take good care of your environment forever. Shalom!
