One of the slogans of environmentalists is: “The Earth Does Not Belong To
Us. We Belong to the Earth.” Of course, in one sense the slogan is true.
Our bodies came from the dust of the earth. But in another sense, the slogan is
not true. While our bodies came from the earth, we do not belong to the earth.
God breathed His breath into us. We belong to Heaven not earth. We were made
for Heaven, not earth. “This world is not our home.”
