This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
One thing very common to northeastern cities is litter—yes trash! Look anywhere and it won't be hard to find bottles, paper, tires, food, dead animals, etc. To some people, littering is just like walking out a door—it comes very easy. There are two things about litter that makes it sinful in the eyes of God. First, it is against the law. The laws of the land prohibit irresponsible acts like people throwing litter around. The word of God makes it clear that our Father in Heaven wishes for citizens to comply with the laws of the land and do what is good for themselves and others (Romans 13:1–7; 1 Peter 2:13–17).
The laws against littering are for the good of every city, state, and nation, for it promotes clean living for the community. Second, littering is offensive to those working to promote the right thing among men. Imagine a person who has cleaned an area, only to return and find that some slob has left a box of half-eaten chicken, candy wrappers, and an empty bottle of beer. Talk about mad, the person who cleaned the area will have every right to be mad because whoever left that trash could care less about the hard effort it took to clean the place. So if you don't want to cause offense, don't litter (2 Corinthians 6:3). And by the way, what are trash cans for?
