The floods in April left Earth Day on Kauai needing a new date to carry out these volunteer based works, and that got us to thinking. As Christians every day is Earth Day. While Earth Day is a great event showing support for environmental protection and resulting in many works being done that benefit the local community as Christians we know that God entrusted his great creation to us.
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
And in this we can show thanks to God by respecting His creation and caring for it. Which isn’t just for one a day a year, but every day. Every day we can show thanks and praise to God by caring for His creation and ensuring that it’s kept as clean and beautiful as He first intended, and by making sure it’s a good home for all others on this earth and for our future generations too. In this we show God that we respect the earth and thank him for his great gift.
Small acts such as picking up litter are as pleasing as a full days work, it’s all in the intention. But if you feel called to do more then there are many volunteer based works to donate your time to. Such as the Earth Day Rescheduled Community Work Day, now to be held on Saturday, June 16th, from 7:30am to Noon in which volunteers will help clean up Kamalani Playground, the park and coastal areas for all to enjoy. They also do weekly clean ups and if you’d like to learn more you can call 639-1018, or click here for the website.
