Good reflection from Vitamin Z here:
Some think that creation doesn’t matter. Isn’t is all just going to burn anyway? But we should value what God values. It is clear that God loves his creation. He was the first one to say that “it is good”.
I find it interesting that this was God’s response to Jonah when Jonah was pouting because God decided not to smite the people of Nineveh:
And should not I pity Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know their right hand from their left, and also much cattle?”
If God cares for dumb cows should we not also care for that which is being utterly destroyed in this massive oil spill?
God loves his creation and we should too.
