God, in his wisdom and through the millennia, has evolved and woven together a rich web of creatures and plants that sustains and propagates life and the variety of life that he obviously loves—because he made so much of it. We’re blessed to be able to explore, understand, appreciate, and care for (when we rise to our role as stewards) that web of life. To study the relationships and inter-dependencies within the natural environment is to witness God’s wondrous work, and to care for and steward God’s nature is to inculcate some of his spirit into ourselves.
