Something to think about.

I like reading this article because it helps me to think who I am and what I have in Christ Jesus. I just hope and pray that this will encourage to those who depend on God alone when it comes to their everyday life.

read....and be blessed!

"The earth is Yahweh’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Ps. 24:1). In the totality of our lives we do not own material things but only have the privilege of using hem for our benefit. Our authority and power over material possessions will end when we eturn to dust (Gen 3:19). We are trustees of the resources Father has given us, not owners. “For who makes thee to differ? And what hast thou which thou didst not receive? But if thou didst even receive it why dost thou boast, as though thou has not received it” (I Cor. 4:7)? An excellent parable concerning trusteeship is Mark 12:1-3. “A man [Yahweh] planted a vineyard, and put round it a wall, and dug a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen [us]; and left home. And he sent forth, unto the husbandmen [us] in the season a servant that from the husbandmen he might receive of the fruits of the vineyard [the earth].” A trustee is a person to whom another’s property or the management of another’s property is entrusted. We as trustees have been placed into a fiduciary relationship. As trustees we must look to the Trust Instrument, Yahweh’s Word, for instructions on how to manage our Father’s vineyard. Our homes, cars, money and retirement funds are Yahweh’s property. This aspect of Yahweh’s ownership is presented in I Chronicles chapter twenty-nine."
