Today’s reading is Psalms 23-26.
Have you ever wondered why any evolutionist is concerned about environmentalism? If there is no God and we are all just here through happy, random chance and accident and the world is governed by survival of the fittest, why worry about the environment? “But species might go extinct.” Sure, but species have been doing that since the beginning of evolution, haven’t they (I’m speaking tongue-in-cheek here). Further, that is the very nature of evolution isn’t it, that species will adapt to the new environment, so life will continue even if it isn’t life as we know it? In other words, if I want to make a case that we should be at all concerned about being good stewards of the environment, I really need to start with Psalm 24:1, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.” After all, being a steward means caring for what belongs to another. If there is no other that the world belongs to, I don’t need to worry at all about stewarding it. Of course, since the earth is the Lord’s, while I should give thought to being a good steward of it, I probably don’t have to worry too much that I’ll be able to destroy it.
Today’s reading is Psalms 27-30.
A Word for Our Kids
Hey kids, remember whose world you live in. This is God’s world, proving forever that the earth does not revolve around you. God gets to make the rules. God gets to define how we live on His world. Never think you get to run the show. Always submit to the one who actually runs the show.
