Psalm 24:1

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Understanding Ownership

The earth is the Lord’s and all it contains,
the world and all who live in it.

This short verse presents us with a profound fact that seldom impacts our everyday lives. All we are and all we possess does not belong to us, it belongs to the Lord. If you were to make up a personal balance sheet of all you own, the page should be blank. You are merely caretakers of someone else’s property and our task as caretakers is to manage that property according to the wishes of the Owner. When was the last time you talked to the Owner about what you were doing with His stuff? As a good and faithful steward, we want to use all that He has entrusted to us wisely and carefully for His purpose and for His glory. Think about it.
