His Stuff - He Made It

God Owns Everything, He is the Creator of the Universe

Psalm 24:1 - The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.

Psalm 89:11 - The heavens are yours, and the earth is yours; everything in the world is yours—you created it all.

Genesis 1:1 - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

John 1:1-3 - In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.

Colossians 1:15-17 - Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else,and he holds all creation together.

Proverbs 22:2 - The rich and poor have this in common: The Lord made them both.

The correct perspective on who owns everything is an essential starting point to being a wise manager. We need to think about how God would have us manage His stuff. This is different than how we would manage His stuff or how we would manage our own stuff. It isn't ours and it needs to be managed according to His will, not our own.

If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life. - Billy Graham
