as we move into the 2nd half of April, I am looking out the window at snow!! Like haven’t we had enough?
And yet it seems like the global warming doomsayers haven’t even slowed down.
I realize that there is scientific evidence that the temperatures of the oceans are rising.
And I whole-heartedly agree that we need to respect and honour this magnificent planet that was created for us.
What I have trouble with is the amount of effort, money and resources being poured into fighting global warming while millions around the world are starving, or fighting in wars, or have been driven from their homes.
I think our directive is to show Jesus’ love to the people all across the globe. If we were to focus our attention on first finding food and shelter for all the people, and then educate them, then the whole planet could collectively work towards protecting our earth.
I am pretty sure our big God can take care of the planet, he has asked us to take care of his people.
The Great Commandment
28 And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
There is no other commandment greater than these.”
John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
