At the E3 Ranch in America's heartland, our respect for God's creation drives us to fully utilize the cattle we raise, leaving nothing to waste. We designate every element - meat, bone, and hide - for re-purpose.
We know that the earth and all of creation came into being by God as designer and creator. We know that God intended for our planet to be inhabited and thus, put in place a number of finely tuned systems, cycles and physical parameters that sustain life.
Adam and Eve were given instructions to work the garden and take care of it. Adam was a caretaker of creation, not a conqueror. Throughout the Bible, we see God demonstrating to His people that the land belongs to Him, not us, and we are merely foreigners here and His tenants (Leviticus 25:23). God instructed man not to overuse the land and to allow it to lie fallow every seven years. So, from this and many other biblical examples, it is clear that God expected humans to sustainably manage the resources He provides. We are to leave an inheritance for our children’s children (Proverbs 13:22).
