Stewards of God’s Mysteries

We are to be the stewards of God’s mysteries
the ones to safeguard his secrets, the majesty of creation
the wonder of the world, the unwrapping of the
web of life, the systems, the laws of nature
all part of the ordered plan of the creator
A world of rules and wondrous beauty
in the forces, the atoms, the mystery of life
Eating of the tree, the knowledge and free will
to act to save, to protect, or to destroy
all within our hands, to choose
So we must be the stewards, the protectors
of this world, this earth, fighting
for its preservation, and the innocents
who are yet to come
They too are the children of God
our legacy must not be wasting their birthright
We must be stewards of God’s mysteries
as his sons and daughters
not frittering away the inheritance of all
