Treated Like Dirt

By Linda Tancs

Dirt gets a bad rap. We often refer to it in negative terms, like talking about being treated like dirt or getting the dirt on someone. In biblical terms, though, dirt is a great resource. After all, God formed man out of dirt (Genesis 2:7). Our natural environment, too, is borne out of the earth. Consider the beauty and wonder of the canyons in Arizona or the red rocks in Australia. Dirt isn’t such a bad thing, after all.
