Everything Belongs to Jesus

Read: Matthew 25:14-30, Psalm 24:1

When we work hard for something, we feel a sense of ownership over it. Whether we’re working for a paycheck or raising kids at home, we see the results of our hard work as ours. But the truth is that the earth and everything in it belongs to the Lord. We don’t own anything—not our houses, our cars or our 401Ks. Everything we have is a blessing from God, and what we do with it matters to Him.

Because our money belongs to God, we have a responsibility to manage it well. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells the story of a master who gave money to several servants. One servant did a bad job managing what he was given, so God took His money from that servant and gave it to another who had been diligent.

God trusts us to manage what we are given. When we prove ourselves trustworthy with what God has given us, He can trust us with more!

Think About:
1. Have you ever thought about the fact that everything you own belongs to the Lord? How does that change the way you make financial decisions?
2. If God were to look at your finances today, would He see you as a faithful manager? Why or why not?
3. What one thing can you do today to be a better manager of the wealth God has given you?

Pray:
Jesus, everything I have is Yours and everything I am I owe to You. Help me to be a good steward of what You have given me.
