On stewardship

According to www.footprintnetwork.org, October 9th was "World Overshoot Day." This means that beginning that day we started living beyond the Earth’s ecological means, since we have already consumed the total amount of new resources nature has and will produce this year. In summary, we entered ecological deficit.

While it might be hard to pinpoint exactly how much of the planet’s resources are being wasted, the fact that we are polluting the environment, depleting resources and exploiting animals is a clear indicator of our poor stewardship of God’s creation. Even though we can not be perfect in a fallen world, we should nevertheless strive for perfection, since we are made in God’s image of love. Our daily choices have an impact of ourselves, animals and the environment; and a plant-based diet can help restore our health, the environment, and alleviate animal suffering.
