Nations rise and nations fall. There are continual power struggles over national boundaries and resources, as governments manage their countries. Few people realise that ultimately God owns the earth and all that is in it. Our work, as good and faithful stewards, is to look after what He has created and bless our fellow men and women with what the Lord has given us. The Lord gives us what we need and we are to give to others where we can, to help them in their need. That’s actually our job!
