Many people talk of how man can help the Earth and many of the things they suggest are helpful, but the greatest help is not even considered in all the discussion I have heard and read. Consider this,
Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7.12–14).
The Lord often afflicts the land because of man’s sin. Therefore, man’s repentance can help heal the land. Are you following the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart? If not, start now and become the salt of the Earth, and you shall help both the people of the Earth and the Earth itself.
