Genesis 1:26-28 in the KJV of the Holy Bible states, “And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish in the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, of God created he him; male and female, created he them. And God blessed them, 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.
Dominion, according to Dictionary.com is the power or right of governing and controlling; sovereign authority, rule, control. This is the essence of our responsibility of our planet. We should be constantly evaluating the health of our planet and making changes in any way possible to keep dominion over its health and welfare. If the environmental issues we face are not our cause, and are of natural or God caused, then we need only to do our best. We must constantly be monitoring our planet as it is the only one we will ever have. Our scientists may be looking for another home for us but no one reading this would live through the trip.
We must save our air, land, water, animals, plants, insects, birds, fish and anything that has life from extinction. Life is God and to allow anything on this planet to extinguish knowing there is a possibility we may in any way be responsible is disrespectful of God. To allow death is to cause death and we are held responsible to the degree we are aware of our part. There is a balance between the environmental terrorists and the greedy business person. The answer to all of life’s riddles are somewhere between the far left and far right. If you want to know how to have more dominion remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
