God has ultimate rule over the earth and He exercises His authority with loving care. When God delegated some of His authority to the human race, He expected people to take responsibility for the environment and the other creatures that share the planet. People must not be careless and wasteful as we fulfill this charge. God was careful how He made this earth and humans must not be careless about how we take care of it. God saw that all He had created was excellent in every way. People need to realize that they are part of God’s creation, and He is pleased with how He made us.

For this reason, there has to be an appropriate time to cease fighting death and simply go to rest in Jesus. Understanding a Biblical worldview, the character of God, and the role of medicine in the Bible can transform my daily medical practice and allow God to be increasingly honored in my daily service to patients.
