Earth Day

April 23, 2009

I just can’t get excited about Earth Day.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the earth.  However, Earth Day is a spiritual holiday.  Earth is honored.  Earth is reverenced.   Earth is praised.  Earth is given gifts.  Earth is given service.  Earth is, well, worshipped.  On any other day, secular is the rule.  If we’re going to go to the extreme of worshipping Earth, on this one day when the secular rule is set aside, why not worship the Creator of earth.  Earth, after all, can do nothing.  It doesn’t think, it doesn’t speak, it doesn’t create.  God does everything.  Doesn’t God deserve a day of worship for making this home for us we call earth.  Then perhaps we’d take better care of it in honor of the One who created not only earth, but us as well.
