Today’s lesson is as follows:
28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”
This speaks very clearly to me. As a vegan, I believe that we have a right to provide for animals and to make sure that we care for our environment. Some believe this to read that we have a right to control and do as we please with animals and the environment we live in. I think that God would not be pleased with the way Earth is today. There is much devastation and abuse, both towards animals and the environment. I hope that being vegan helps to reduce the waste and abuse. I am vegan for animal rights issues, but it is a bonus that it also helps our environment. We have dominion, but it’s not a dictatorship. We have abilities that allow us to provide, yet we abuse that privilege daily.
