Littering isn't just a crime, it's also a sin

When we see the inmates of the Pasquotank prison picking up litter along our roads and highways, whose garbage are they picking up? These inmates are cleaning up after those who throw their garbage out of their vehicles without a first or second thought.

The litterers are mindless slobs trashing God’s precious Earth: “The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.”

A Christian who litters is committing both a sin and a crime. The authorities might not see the person throw the garbage out his or her window, but God sees, and God remembers.

So, don’t be a slob. Don’t litter. Don’t sin against God and his beautiful Earth. Love the Earth “and the fullness thereof.”
