It's Not Mine Anyway

A+ A-
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. - Luke 12:48

God commanded man to "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground" in the very first book of the Bible. It stands to reason that people who obey this command and are able to do this command will be given more of the earth to take care of.

Having this knowledge causes me to think more carefully about how I treat what I have. Am I making the best use of what God has given to me? If I am, then I should expect to be given more to put to use. Wouldn't God prefer to bless someone who will turn around and bless someone else as compared to someone who will hoard the money or use it for evil purposes?

Having chased money, power, and position for many years; the idea of stewardship is incredibly liberating. To obey God is to love God. Having these things is not even about me, it's about obeying God and refreshing others. I don't have to be concerned with acquiring, I just need to properly handle what I've been given. After all, it's not mine anyway, it's just mine to care for.
