Renters vs Owners
From a financial position, I would normally talk about ownership being better than renting in many cases …but in this situation, it’s not about what’s better.
No, in this case I want you to think of you, your life and all you have being OWNED by God. We are simply the renters. It all belongs to Him. I just get to use it.
If you own a home, you know there are extra responsibilities. Hey, if something breaks, the owner is responsible.
But in life, God is ultimately the one in charge. The stuff we get to use isn’t ours. Let’s take care of it, and use it in a way that honors the Owner.
It’s just a great perspective check to remember who really owns…EVERYTHING! So relax. He’s got this!
“God claims Earth and everything in it, God claims World and all who live on it. He built it on Ocean foundations, laid it out on River girders.
Who can climb Mount God? Who can scale the holy north-face? Only the clean-handed, only the pure-hearted; Men who won’t cheat, women who won’t seduce.
God is at their side; with God’s help they make it. This, Jacob, is what happens to God-seekers, God-questers.” (Psalm 24:1-6 MSG)
