People have all kinds of ideas about what constitutes the spiritual. Like this one:

“There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet.” –Brooke Medicine Eagle

Is it spiritual to take care of this planet? Open the New Testament and read differently. Spiritual is taking care of the soul’s eternal destiny. Mine and yours.

Yes, there is the stewardship principle in the Bible into which we may insert an ecological concern for the earth, but this is far from the meaning of spirituality.

It’s ironic that the concept of spiritual has been applied to this material, temporal earth.

J. Randal Matheny

Be pithy.
