“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.”
Psalm 24:1 (NIV)
The Bible contains more than 2,000 references pertaining to money and possessions. In almost all, it is very clear that our money and possessions aren’t really ours, but they are God’s. They are His to give and take away, and also His to portion to us as we need it and use it for His glory. As much as we want to believe what’s ours is ours, we must understand that what is ours is actually God’s. And so, what we do with the money and possessions that God entrusts in our care (stewardship) require the utmost deliberation and care.
We have been delegated responsibility from our Master to use everything we own and possess (whether it be our money or our possessions, or even our bodies) as though it were not our own, but God’s. That may mean that we are purposeful and intentional on how we invest and use our money and it may mean that we be generous with what we have and own. It means that we no longer use our time, our money, our possessions, our abilities as we see fit, but these are God’s, and one day we will answer to Him for what we did with the portions entrusted to us while on earth.
