Consider that the very same God who set the earth into orbit and knit you together in the womb has entrusted you with the responsibility to manage his intricate creation. You are not a mere speck of dust in this vast creation. You are a "ruler," a steward, a manager in trust of, over all that God has made. And you have been crowned with "glory and honor" (Ps 8:5-6) in this divine appointment. Human beings--created in the divine image--are the only creatures that God entrusted with the mandate and the capacity to unleash and harness creation's potential (see Ge 1:26-29).
