We need to start with God. Everything belongs to Him. God created and then He gave us responsibility. We cannot speak of ownership in an absolute sense, only God owns in an absolute sense.
We were created after the Earth was created. God gave instructions to Adam and Eve after He created them. God knows that unless we mange His property by His instructions, we will not get His results.
Stewardship always has limitations. God gave much to eat from but He gave only one they could not eat from.
Christianity has more positive then negative. God always keeps something back. Everyone had to give 10% Before, during and after the law was given. It is for God’s purposes only. It does not belong to us.
Freedom never means you can do whatever you want. Freedom means that I have the power to do what I am supposed to do. We get that from Truth. You cannot have Truth without Absolutes. Jesus said “Let us go…” That means He is with us and we need not worry.
If the Bible is not in your hand you cannot remember that we are ok in hard times. We should focus on what He gives us and not on what He holds back. Whenever men fail to obey God, abuse and failure will occur. If men will steal from God, they will steal from you. When God is no longer God and Man is no longer Man and Man is now God, he will not respect life.
Don’t let Satan focus you on the wrong things. Sooner or later God will always let you know who owns what. He will reduce you down to size. Sooner or later you will be held accountable for your stewardship or lack thereof.
Never get upset because others given more than you, God will only hold you accountable for what He has given you. God expects you to take what He gives you and maximize it to as much as you can.
Don’t become complacent. Don’t play with what He has given to you in your care. If you’re not a good steward, get ready to lose your stuff. He who has that uses what he has, God will multiply. Be willing to maximize what you have.
