The middle school youth will learn about our call to care for God’s creation as stewards of what God gives us.
It can be difficult to understand the role of a steward in a society that isn’t ruled by a monarch. In a monarchy, stewards are selected to watch over the king/queen’s land, money, crops, animals, etc. The steward understands that everything in the kingdom belongs to the king and so proper care must be kept so that the king/queen’s resources are not wasted. So to is it with us. God calls us to be worthy stewards of His creation. Psalm 24:1-2 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein; for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers.”
