Caretaker of God’s Creation Covenant I am a caretaker of God’s creation. I help care for the world by giving. I give my time to learn about God and the Bible. I give my heart by loving those around me, even when it’s hard. I give myself by sharing my talents with others. I give my gifts and money to share with those in need. I give my hands by caring for others and protecting the earth. I give my desire by wanting less and offering more. I give all of me to help God care for the world. I am a caretaker of God’s creation.
