Is it wrong to litter?

Here's the answer:

Yes, it is wrong to litter.

The Bible never specifically talks about littering, but we know it is wrong. Littering dirties up the beautiful planet God has given us. Litter makes green spaces look bad and it can hurt animals. God wants us to take care of the earth.

Jesus teaches us to do to others as we would want them to do to us (Matthew 7:12). Would you want somebody to litter in your front yard or in your favorite park? Would you like to have empty soda cans in your garden? In the same way, we should not litter other areas.

Littering is not good for the earth. If we litter, we hurt the earth that God has given us. Even if people think it is cool to throw trash on the ground, it is not. It is never cool to hurt the planet God has given us. Do your best to not litter.

Bible Truth

"In everything, do to others what you would want them to do to you. This is what is written in the Law and in the Prophets" (Matthew 7:12).

"Do not pollute the land where you are. Murder pollutes the land. Only one thing can pay to remove the pollution in the land where murder has been committed. The blood of the one who spilled another’s blood must be spilled" (Numbers 35:33).
