Over the next 4 weeks as we explore the idea of “being green,” I’ll offer some Scripture passages to reflect on and some ways to respond in your life. And so we begin here: with gratitude, with worship, with praise to the Creator!
Reflect: Psalm 100:1-3
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Respond with Action:
• Go on a walk outdoors and notice as much as you can. God’s good gifts in creation are endless! As you notice, in your soul offer thanks.
• Have you taken God’s creation for granted? Pray, confessing an attitude of ingratitude that may have infiltrated your life. Freely receive God’s abundant grace for you.
• Spend time seeing bits of God’s amazing creation that may not be part of your normal life. Find pictures of animals at the National Wildlife Federation’s site or videos of endangered animals at Arkive. Watch the BBC/Discovery Channel Planet Earth series to see stunning vistas from around the globe (and even under the sea!).
