For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yes, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no pre-eminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

I got reminded of this biblical quote by an X-Files episode. You can view the many translations yourself. Stewardship rather than dominance seems to have been forgotten by many modern American worshipers of the book. If you're sitting there saying "not me", then keep the quote in your conscience and truly ask yourself when the last stewardly act you undertook was. Then think of how often you are stewardly. I bet it's not as often as you would hope.
