|The highest heavens belong to the LORD,|
but the earth he has given to man.
|The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.|
God created the earth and He has graciously given this incredible gift to man as a dwelling place.
We are to be good stewards of the earth and it's resources; not because it is ours, but because it is HIS.
