Wednesday - December 29, 2010 - Revelation 10-14

S - Revelation 11:18b "The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small - and for destroying those who destroy the earth."

O - The twenty-four elders were proclaiming the day of God's judgment in John's Revelation.

A - God is going to destroy "those who destroy the earth." These words have never stood out for me before, but they blared at me today. Sometimes us Christians despise environmentalist vigilantes because they worship the earth, it seems, as opposed to God. And they might, but that does not mean that taking care of our planet is a bad thing. That was the first vocation (and probably avocation) for Adam - taking care of the garden. Just because we know God will give us a new heaven and a new earth (Rev 21:1), this does not give us free reign to trash our planet. And look - God is going to destroy those who destroy it.

P - Lord, help me to be a good steward of the land You have given us to live on. Thank You for its beauty, Lord.
