Stewardship in Religious Education

"Stewardship" means to look after the world for God. Christians believe that God has created a world in which humans have a special role as stewards of creation. This means they should look after the interests of the planet and all life on it. This belief is more about living in harmony with nature.

When God gave humans dominion over the land, he gave them responsibility too. Humans were created to be stewards of the land, i.e. to use it, to look after it and to protect it.

Therefore caring for the environmental and understanding of the issues and problems is important if they are to be successful in this mission.
