Hunter, Senior Pastor Northland, A Church Distributed “God’s first order to man is to cultivate and keep the earth.” Joel explained that man’s duty is to take care of this earth we are on. How even Adam was responsible at the very beginning, this is important for us to realize how much we are responsible for and not to take this so lightly. 3. James Merritt, Former President – Southern Baptist Convention “We don’t own anything but are borrowing it from God, when we pass we take nothing with us. We are the “owners of nothing, stewards of everything.” This reminded me of the verse referring to the rich man not being able to pass his possessions, it will be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. This is such a cool thing to grasp. 4.
