You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, All sheep and oxen, And also the beasts of the field, The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, Whatever passes through the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, How majestic and glorious and excellent is Your name in all the earth (Psalms 8:6-9)!
G_d’s intention for mankind is that he/she would have dominion in the land or the place he calls us to. We are called to be stewards of G_d’s gift what we do as stewards will either be a good or bad gift to G_d sort of like the case of Cain and Able (Genesis 4:3-6). As children of the Living G_d, we should strive to please Him so that when we face Him, it will be “Well done though good and faithful servant (Matthew 25:33). What we have in this land does not belong to us so we must take care of it so that it can be handed down to another generation.
Thank you for this new day and the land and resources you give us dominion over. May you be pleased with what I do and how I do it.
