Job 41:11

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Understanding Ownership

Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine.

I have asked thousands of Christians the question, “Do you believe that God owns everything?” The answer is always an unquestionable, “Yes.” Intellectually, we get it. God owns everything. However, there is a massive disconnect between what we intellectually acknowledge and how we practically live. We will openly admit that God owns everything, yet in our daily lives we live like WE are the owners. We choose our house, our cars, our clothes, where we will invest, how we will spend our time, like we are the owners of it all – never even thinking to ask the real Owner what He wants us to do with it all. Are you living this contradiction? Think about it.
