Dominion

I came across a piece of scripture earlier today that I will share at the end of my writing this.  I am sure you are familiar with it.  I have seen that people are waiting for things to happen for them.  They spend countless days, months, if not years waiting.  We already have the authority and the access to possess the land.  Dominion is seeing after what God has given to us and being wise over those things that we have access to.

Dominion is not misusing or abusing God’s creation.  We need to manage it.  In managing what God has given to us allows us to be able to leave a legacy for those that are coming after us.  What we do with what we have will impact the future generations on down the line.  We are responsible for studying and understanding the world so we can fully utilize our resources that we have been given.  

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”   Understanding what we have been given should start us on the way to thinking different about what we are here to do.  What are we doing with the resources that we already have?
