“For, the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” 1 Corinthians 10:26

During the late 1960s, Americans were using so much leaded gas that air pollution became the smell of prosperity. Concerns for the environment were low, and many were oblivious to the damage being done to our earth.

When Gaylord Nelson noticed the ignorance of the people around him, he created a day to “force environmental protection onto the national political agenda.” Ever since the first Earth Day in 1970, it has been celebrated by 184 countries and millions of people.

We can be involved by picking up trash at a local park, making environmentally friendly choices, or even by spreading awareness to keep our earth clean. We are all responsible for keeping this world a pleasant place to live, until Jesus comes back to take us home.
