READ Psalm 50:12
This verse makes it clear who owns the world and all that is in it…. God! God is the rightful owner because He is the Creator of the earth and owns all the resources that were created by Him.
If you provide me a man’s credit card statements, his checking account documents and his tax return I will be able to see what his priorities are in his life. If you see your finances as “your money” then I would expect that most of your finances would be spent on yourself. If you see your finances as a stewardship of God’s resources He entrusts to you then your whole mindset should be different.
What would a faithful servant look like?
- Looks for opportunities to help others
- Does not consider what you will gain in return for helping
- Does not consider % giving as a ceiling to giving to God’s work.
- Help family members in need
- Listens for Holy Spirit guidance to help others
- Avoids debt or lives above their wage!
God please help me to be faithful with the resources that You provide to me. Please help me to be a faithful steward with finances, helping others as You lead me by Your Spirit. Please forgive me when I am selfish with Your resources and am not a good steward. Lead me to give so others would be drawn closer to You. Amen.
