DIG for Sunday the 8th of January…..we are stewards, not owners…..Colossians 1 v 16

One of the things I have been learning lately is that we do not actually own anything here on earth.

All that we have is from God and we are His stewards here on earth.

All in this earth, including money and resources, belongs to Him and we are here it use it wisely.

What we think we own is not actually ours, as everything in this universe (including your wallet and purse and their contents) belongs to the Lord.

The Word is clear that Jesus created everything (Hebrews 1 v 3).

The Word is also clearly that everything that was created was for Him as well, so He is the owner (Colossians 1 v 16).

What we have has been given to us by God, what we earned was earned through the skills He gave us.

Once we realise this truth is makes it easier t olive out verses such as Hebrews 13 v 16 and 1 Timothy 6 v 18.

We are meant to share and distribute what we have among others, especially those of the household of faith (Galatians 6 v 10).

This is easier to do once we realise that what we are sharing and distributing is not ours.

All that we have belongs to the Lord.

This is not an easy concept, especially for those of us living in the “consumer madness” that is the Western world.

But it is a Biblical concept that we need to grasp in order to help those in this world less fortunate than ourselves.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you lord that you have blessed me through the work of my hands and thank you that you have blessed me with abundance”.

Colossians 1 v 16…..For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him
