Thanks for all of your thoughts. I would like to thank everyone who commented about my last “my opinion” blog or e-mailed me. I think many of us are silently frustrated and weary of what seems to be a losing fight in politics, social changes, sin, finances, and the noise that is our world.
Often it is so easy to dwell on the negative. It is so easy to get weary of fighting with the opposing influences in our country and our own personal lives. Over the next few days I want to point out the more positive aspects of our world, our worth, and our technology.
The first thing I want to talk about is our world...
I’m not talking about our society. I’m talking about the beautiful world our Heavenly Father has given his children. We don’t belong to the earth as our green friends would say. The earth belongs to us. The earth is ours to use as we see fit. The earth is our stewardship. We will be held accountable someday for our stewardship over the world.
And God blessed [Adam and Eve], and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Pretend you had a daughter who was moving to
Pretend you gave a car to your other child who was moving to
Which child would you be most disappointed in?
I would be disappointed in both kids – my daughter for not taking care of her car and my son for not using the car in the first place. Believe it or not, I would be more concerned about my son. He didn’t even use the car. I would think that he didn’t appreciate the car I gave him. I would think he was kinda dumb for just letting the car sit in his driveway. Is the car more important than my child? No! My son is far more important to me than the car. I gave him the car so he could be successful in
Our Heavenly Father looks at us in much the same way. He has given his children this world and he wants us to be happy. He doesn’t want us to trash the earth and he doesn’t want us to think the earth is more important than we are. In fact, we are far more important to him than the whole earth. We have been created in His image. God can always create another earth...
