On Loan from God (1 Timothy 6:17)

When we speak of our family, our house, our car, we are speaking of people and things that God has allowed us to enjoy while here on earth, but they really belong to Him. Notice the psalmist’s praise to God, “The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours” (Psalm 89:11).

Understanding who really holds the title to all we possess should change our thinking. Just as I am aware that RBC lets me use its equipment to help me do my work for the ministry more efficiently and effectively, so also we should be aware that everything we have on earth is given to us to advance God’s cause.

Our time, talents, and possessions are all given so that we can do God’s work effectively. – J. David Branon

God owns the gold in every mine,

The cattle on the hills;

And in His sovereign grace He gives

According as He wills. – D. De Haan

Our worth is not determined by what we have but by what we do with what we have.
