Today's Verse : Genesis 1:26


January 26, 2012

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,
and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the
air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the
creatures that move along the ground."
-- Genesis 1:26
While we are creatures made by a loving Creator, we are so much
more than animals. There is something distinctive and special about
a human being compared with the rest of creation. God made us to
rule over the animal world. But rule does not mean ruin! Since
creation is part of God's testimony to himself (Psalm 19 & Romans
1:20), then we certainly don't want to ruin that testimony. In
fact, being made in God's likeness, we want to rule with the grace,
benevolence, and care that God himself uses.
Father, help me see all the beauty of your creation. Guard me
from wastefulness. Guide me into the proper use of the natural
resources with which you have so generously blessed me. Most of
all, direct my decisions in the way I impact your creation. May my
lifestyle and my personal life never damage the beauty of your
voice in my world. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
