Is God a Tree Hugger?

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it. The other day I posted a video on air pollution (please check it out here.) When we first started focusing our investment thesis more around the environment at my venture firm, Amasia, I wondered how that all reconciled with my faith. Evangelical Christians particularly in the US have been known not to support initiatives tied with sustainability. But after digging around I’ve come to the conclusion that God wants us to take care of his creation. The earth is the Lord’s. It is his masterpiece. In Genesis 1 he stepped back seven times to wonder at his creation, and he “saw that it was good.” What irks my boys probably more than anything else is when one of their brothers destroys a Lego masterpiece that they created. I can’t imagine God being much happier when he sees his children disrespecting his creation, in which he took such pride. God, please help me to take more care in protecting this world you created. I love you, and I want to show love to everything that is yours. In your son’s name, Amen.
