Not Mine But His

Luke 12:15 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”  (NIV)

We are consumed with a desire of ownership.  We want to own our own house, our car, our toys.  We even want to claim ownership to our jobs and our ministries.  Even as volunteers we get upset if someone else wants to take over our position.  We have a false sense of ownership.  In actuality, nothing in this world is owned by any human being.  Everything belongs to God as He is the One Who created all that was, is or will ever be.  Any ability we have for a job or a ministry is purely from the grace of God.  We are to watch out, be on our guard, against a possessive attitude.  We are born in sin with the attitude of “it’s mine.”  We need to remember all is from God and we need to be good stewards by taking proper care of and with all that is.  Let us learn to be good stewards of God’s possessions.
