A 12 part series discussing stewardship.
By: Barry G. Allen
Acknowledge with all your heart what the Psalmist declared in Psalm 24:1 and what the prophet Haggai said in Haggai 2:8, namely God is the owner of everything; we are his stewards/trustees.
Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it….”
Haggai 2:8 “The silver is mine and the gold is mine, declares the Lord Almighty.”
This is where stewardship begins – acknowledgment that God is the owner of everything, and He has entrusted it to us to manage in His behalf. So, that car you drive to church is not yours, it’s the Lord’s. That house you live in, that brokerage account, that retirement plan – they are not yours; they belong to Him. Until you can acknowledge this biblical truth, you will not be able to receive the benefits He has promised His faithful stewards.
