One of the beautiful bounties and benefits of being a kingdom steward is that the Owner takes ultimate responsibility for His management team. When you insist on acting as an owner rather than as a manager, you will have to take responsibility for the outcomes yourself. Self-ownership creates a major problem in our culture because it places these so-called owners at the mercy of their own control.
As a result, far too many believers are drowning in a sea of debt—unable to live their lives as God designed them to be lived, while others find themselves enslaved to the god of their wealth, making them enemies of the true God. According to God’s Word, you cannot worship both God and money (Matthew 6:24). Rather, we are to use money to draw our hearts in a Godward direction so that we might maximize our time as stewards on this earth.
Once we let go of self-ownership, we open the door to God coming in and helping us clean up the mess we’ve made. He wants to bless us abundantly so that we might invest what He gives us back into the kingdom.We are to use money to draw our hearts in a Godward direction so that we might maximize our time as stewards on this earth.
