We have a tendency to believe we got everything we have on our own. We did it ourselves. Material things and money — we did it. And we believe these things belong to us, because we earned it, we bought it.

God has given us everything we have. God has provided it, and God owns it. He has given us power to get wealth, it is not us. We are simply stewards — over seers/managers of what God has given us. God owns it all. And if we are not careful, all that we have, that God has given us, can be taken away if we don’t manage it like He wants us to.

Deuteronomy 8:17-18 (KJV) – and thou say in thine heart, my power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God : for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
