For God So Loved the World

 The Art
Great Crested Grebes and Otters were at one time hunted nearly to extinction and for the same reason, fashion. The skins from the head of the Grebe were worn by Victorian Ladies as hats and mufflers. The Otters provided fur for coats and generally hunted for sport. The stupidity, cruelty and callous indifference of humanity seems to be almost boundless. And maybe there is some truth in that. In addition, the destruction of the environment and exploitation, and the future does not look great for all species who share the same world. We were given responsibility for our World. We have totally mismanaged it. There will be consequences. 
The Scripture
In complete contrast to the above, this scripture points toward a  a right relationship between God, man and nature, being a blessing. We have choices and responsibility.
