We tend to believe that what we have does belong to us because we have worked hard for it and sacrificed to get it and it is ours. We get to decide what we do with it-whether we hold on to it, use it just for ourselves or decide to give some or all of it away. Ownership is a big deal to us. We measure ourselves by how much we have and what we own, and we live in a world that does the same. But the Scriptures teach that we own nothing-everything belongs to God. It is His-not ours. We have been entrusted with it and we are now managers and stewards of it. We must understand this principle first before we will ever realize the proper place of money and stuff in our lives.
