On Earth Day I tweeted:
“According to the Torah, we are placed on this earth to tend and watch over it (Gen 2:15). Happy Earth Day! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. #EarthDay”
I also posted something similar on Facebook. I was surprised to hear some of the responses. People often do not associate Torah values with that of being good stewards of the environment. However, the Torah has much to say about our role towards the world in which we live.
Therefore, I was really happy to see First Fruits of Zion’s blog post today on Torah and the Environment, which gives a great perspective from not only a traditional Jewish sources, but additionally, a Messianic Jewish perspective for those of us who are followers of Yeshua.
I greatly encourage you to check it out!
