God made the World Special (Creation)
God made the world and asked us to take good care of it.
In Genesis 1:26-28, God gave humanity dominion over his creation. This dominion is in the form of a stewardship. On the one hand the creation is created to meet our needs and we have the right to exploit as needed and humanity stands apart from and people are more important than the rest of creation. On the other hand, God cares for his creation, as Jesus noted in Matthew 6, and God remains the Lord over all creation. We are thus commanded to also care for his creation and not despoil it. Sin has caused us to be very greedy and so only think about ourselves. This is not God’s way. He has given everyone and everything more than enough for their needs to be met if will learn to give rather than take.
