Hmmmmmm.... Random Thought I've been Pondering

Given an inch... why do I often feel like I'm entitled the whole mile? Given the command to "have dominion," why assume that domination is acceptable?

Dominion... ruling... a powerful sphere of influence or authority... is a legitimate privilege and responsibility. Domination has an abusive, uglier undertone,... an overpowering, smothering influence that grasps, tramples, destroys or renders impotent.

Gorgeous glimpses of Spring's arrival have prompted serious reflection on how we should be caring for God's creation...

What do you think?

The Creation of the Animals, by Raphael, 1518-19 (detail from the Stanze e Loggia)
