…..What hast thou that thou didst not receive? …..
When you look at the resources around you,what do you think of yourself?
1 Chronicles 29:11-12, Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
An owner or caretaker!
John 3:27, John answered and said, A man can receive nothing,except it be given him from heaven.
An owner’s mentality puts you in danger of loosing what you have,while the caretaker, which is stewardship attitude makes you multiply in all that is kept in your possession.
James 1:17, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
God,the source of all good things is on the look for caretakers to distribute His goods to mankind.
1 Timothy 6:17-18 Charge them that are rich in this world,that they be not highminded,nor trust in uncertain riches,but in the living God,who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
That they do good,that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute,willing to communicate;
Are you looking for what to possess or positioning yourself to be a distributor of what He gives?
1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift,even so minister the same one to another,as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
