One with God’s creation By Jules Cleary St Brigid’s Primary school
God as creator
God created everything. He loves his creation and he wants it to continue.
God created the Earth
God created the Earth as a safe place to live. He created the Earth out of love.
God created the plants big and small and tall
He created the plants as home for the animals. He created the plants, so that we could enjoy beautiful perfume. He created them as food for animals and humans.
God created the Animals wild and tame
He created the animals to live on the Earth.
He made their homes in the trees, in the grass, rocks and water. He created tiny insects and mighty lions. All of these animals were created by God.
God created people tall and small
He created people to look after his creation and to care for it. He created us in the image of him.
Creation is everything. If creation dies we die. If trees are destroyed or cut down we won’t have any oxygen to breathe and the animals will lose their homes. Creation has a limit on it -it can’t keep producing. Creation is wonderful and we (as humans) need to make sure it stays like that.
Creation is all around us. This includes, fruit, land, pets, insects, plants, water, oceans, mountains and life. All of these have a purpose in God’s creation because every living thing big and small is different.
We need to protect creation by only taking what we need.We need to respect creation by looking after it. We can plant trees, not buy animal skins, save water and walk places instead of driving.
“ Come and see what God has done …”
My Place In Creation
My place in creation is to care for God’s creation. This may be to look after people, by protecting my sister. If I don’t look after my sister she may be bullied, teased or taken. To care for animals and to look after my pets by feeding/walking them and not hurting them. I can look after injured animals by calling WIRES. If I don’t care for God’s animals, they may become extinct or endangered.
My Place In Creation
I can look after the environment by recycling paper I use, reusing water bottles, asking mum and dad to help make a worm farm, get a water tank at home to collect the water and building a compost at home. If we don’t care about looking after the environment, we will destroy the land, the rainforests, the lakes and our homes.
My Place In Creation
Respect all of God’s creation by looking after the environment and not destroying the animals’ habitats. The earth has been given to us, to be in our care. This world in holy.
“ O Lord,our Lord your greatness is seen in all the world! Your praise reaches up to the heavens.”
My three ways to care for God’s creation
One of the ways I can care for God’s creation is by saving Electricity. I can save Electricity by turning off all Electrical appliances and not waste time on the computer. On sunny days I can go outside and play and not play computer games. This is important to me because I can get exercise and keep fit.
My three to care for Gods creation
I can also care for God’s creation by looking after trees. I can look after trees by not cutting them down and by planting more trees for native animals. I can also look after trees by supporting “National Tree Day”. This will result in clean air and we’ll be saving the trees. I can also recycle paper and fill up the whole page before printing from the computer. Caring for the trees is important to me because it means the native animals have more homes to live in.
My three way to care for Gods creation
I can care for God’s creation by saving water. I can save water by fixing dripping taps and having shorter showers. I can also save water by getting a water tank to collect the rain water and having less baths. I can save water by fitting water flow devices on the taps. It is important to save water because we may run low in our dams and run out altogether.
“ Every day I will thank you. I will praise you for ever and ever… (Psalm 145:2)
How I Can be Responsible For Animals
People can be responsible for their animals by feeding them and not letting them go hungry. Giving their pets fresh water every day. Make sure they have a big area to run and play and also make sure that they are fenced in and taken on long walks or played with.
How I Can Be Responsible For Animals
To be responsible I need to take animals to the vet on a regular basis for check ups. If my animal is hurt or injured it needs medical attention from the vet. If you are not responsible and don’t take care of your animals we are not looking after God’s creation. If you don‘t feed your animals they will go hungry and die. If you don’t give your animals fresh water they will die and if you do this, you kill God’s creation.
Praise And Thanks
Praise God for his creation of the world. Thank you God for the shooting stars and the different land we live on. Praise God for the animals that live in the world both tame and wild. Thank you God for my pet dog who I like to play with. Praise God for the beautiful people that live all over the world. Thank you God for my mum and dad who care for me. Praise God for the ocean and the marine life. Thank you God for all the different sea life. Praise God for the universe and the sun and moon. Thank you God for the universe that has the sun and moon that give us day and night. Praise God for the green islands surrounded by water. Thank you God for the coconut trees that provide milk for us to drink. Praise and Thank you God for all the creation you have made. All your creation is good, Praise God.
