It's Not Easy Being Green

Fifth Commandment, Mother Earth, Respect for Parents, Respect for Mother Earth
While younger generations are more likely to talk passionately about "Mother Earth," some studies show they are less likely to buy "green" than those over 55. 

Many of us have the same inconsistancy when it comes to respecting our earthly mothers. We talk the talk but fail to walk the walk. 

I speak from experience. It took me many years before I realized that God’s Fifth Commandment was not only good for my parents and in-laws, but also good for me.

“Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” Ephesians 6:2,3 NIV*

Environmental respect is a good thing, but Mother Earth didn’t make it into the 10 Commandments, and earthly mothers (and fathers) did.

Are you ready to champion the causes that God champions? If so, ask God for specific ways you can act on His priorities this week.

  1. Good post...and that reminds me...I was going to call my mother :-) I know as a mother I like it when my children enjoy being around me and the same goes for me showing my mother I care.
