Hey - It's Earth Day!

Have you ever started reading the Bible from the very beginning? After you get past the Table of Contents, you'll find the book of Genesis and the story of how God created the world and everything in it.

After He created the plants and the trees, the flowers and birds, the creatures of the sea and the land, He saw that it was good. Just think of all of the great things that God gave us to enjoy - the waves on the beach, the beautiful flowers in spring time, and all of the amazing animals that roam the Earth.

This planet is a great gift that God has given to us, and that's why we need to take care of it. Since today is Earth Day, it's the perfect time to take a look at some of our habits and see how we can make a positive difference.

Think of some of the things that you do each day and how they impact the planet. Are there some ways that you can help keep it clean and healthy? Maybe you can recycle old newspapers or homework assignments that you no longer need. Maybe you can take a bike ride around the neighborhood and pick up soda cans for recycling. Or, gather your parents and some friends to help plant a few trees or flowers.

There are a lot of small things that you can do to help take care of this awesome home that God has given us. Click here for some ideas on how you can get started!
