Serve God, Save the Planet
I have long been a nature lover and thought of myself as an “environmentally friendly” person. I put plastic and alluminum in recycling containers, purchase recycleable materials and would never litter. I spent several years in the landscape industry and half of our job was picking up the litter others threw out their windows. But I have recently felt very convicted by God to take an inventory of my habits and lifestyle choices that effect the environment. I am doing this within my home and business. Many of you know that I have recently become affiliated with Organic Bouquet and Blumebox. Both of which are environmentally friendly companies. I have decided that if I am going to have the privilege of using my God given talents to help support my family I need to be as responsible as possible.
Along came Serve God Save the Planetby J. Matthew Sleeth, MD. This is one of the first books I have found that is a collection of personal accountability to God and our Earth and not directed at Politicial change. There are a lot of things I am doing right, many changes I have already made, several changes I am going to make and a few that I am praying God will give me the willpower and courage to change.
Serve God, Save the Planet addresses the questions:
- How can I live a more godly, equitable, and meaningful life?
- How can I help people today and in the future?
- How can I be less materialistic?
- How can I live a more charitable life?
- What would happen if I led a slower-paced existence?
