Genesis 1:26

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.  They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”

Genesis 1:26 HCSB

We see in this verse where God created the earth and all that is in it for mankind’s use, but not abuse.  Later, in Genesis 2:15, God states that we are to tend and watch over the garden; this means we are to be good stewards, we are to take care of His creations in a respectful and loving manner.  We are not to abuse animals, poison the land, or destroy for financial gain; we are to take care of our animals no matter if they are pets or livestock, we are to take care of the land and think of the future generations.

To rule over the earth means one thing; we have been entrusted to take care of our Father’s land and belongings, and we will be judged accordingly.
