Did you know?
“The earth and everything in it belong to the Lord.”(Ps. 24:1)
We are thankful we can live, work, and play here.
God didn’t ask us to care for the earth—
He commanded us!
So, what are you waiting for?
Let’s get started!
Through bible verses, author Amy Houts explains to kids that everyone, all human beings, must work together to save the Earth by reversing the effects of hundreds of year of human-created environmental damage.
From organizing peaceful protests and writing letters to elected officials to recycling and saving water at home, kids are encouraged to make change and to ask others to do so as well. And that they should not feel discouraged if they can’t convince everyone.
But, some people won’t listen.
They won’t believe you.
They will argue with you.
Your faith will keep you going
because, “you will know the truth.
And the truth will make you free.” (John 8:32)
