Mind Your Own Business- Devotional – Day 1

Thanks for checking out these devotional thoughts and scriptures.  My prayer is that we all will grow to another level, not only in our generosity and stewardship, but mostly our relationships with the Lord during these next 40 days.

Just for the record, I am sharing these devotionals with you from a resource that I have been going through on my own.  It is a daily devotional book written by Brian Kluth about giving, stewardship, finances and generosity.  you can find all his resources here.  Enjoy this first day and enjoy God’s favor upon your life today!!

Day 1
God is the Owner of everything
(including all that you currently have or ever will have)

Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to your life:
Psalm 50:10-12 (God says) “Every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills…and the creatures of the field are
mine…the world is mine, and all that is in it.”
Haggai 2:8 “ The silver is mine and the gold is mine,” declares the
LORD Almighty.”
1 Chronicles 29:11-12 “Everything in heaven and earth is yours
(O Lord)…Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all
things.”
Leviticus 25:23 (God says) “The land is mine and you are but aliens
and my tenants.”
1 Chronicles 29:14-16 (David’s prayer after people gave generously
to a building project) “But who am I, and who are my people, that we
should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from
you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. We are
aliens and strangers in your sight, as were all our forefathers. Our days
on earth are like a shadow, without hope. O LORD our God, as for all
this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for
your Holy Name, it comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.”
Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world,
and all who live in it.”

If we belong to Christ, it’s logical that everything we have truly belongs to Him.
When we give to God, we are just taking our hands off what already belongs to Him.
