Blessed to be a Blessing
November 19, 2023
Our decisions have an impact. The environment, our relationships, future generations are impacted by our stewardship of what we have been given. And while it may seem overwhelming - “Am I responsible for every single thing in all of creation?!?’ The answer is ‘Yes’. The hope the Bible has for us is that we will rise to the challenge rather than back away.
The Extra Mile: The phrase Biblical commentaries will use often about this passage is that we are ‘created co-creators. What this means is that we are obviously created by God, but we also have the ability to created and to give order to the world. While not as powerful as God’s ability, a certain power is given to us and we are to put our creative abilities to work.
Scripture: Genesis 1:26-28
