1. Humans are given the task of stewarding the earth.
In the very first book of the Bible-Genesis--God places Adam in the Garden of Eden to "tend and watch over it" (Genesis 2:15). God of course is capable of caring for the earth He created Himself, but it is significant that he assigns this task to the people He created. Anyone who has ever tended a garden, helped clean up city streets, or planted new trees has likely felt the joy of this task.
