Ecclesiastes 3:19 For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity.
Another side of the wisdom God continued to give Solomon is given here. We all live on this planet, man, animals, plants and everything else.
When we mess things up it is messing it up for everything and not just us.
The things we do are going to affect those around us and in turn the world around us too.
God gave us charge of this world – let us not mess it up before He gets back!
