The Daily Grace - God Owns Everything


It's easy to take for granted all the material and spiritual blessings that God has given us. That's why we need to stop and remember that Scripture says the true owner of all we possess is God: "All that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all" (1 Chron. 29:11). Even our bodies do not belong to us: "Do you not know that your  body is the temple of the Holy Spirit . . . and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price" (1 Cor. 6:19-20).

As 1 Timothy 6:17 reminds us: "God . . . gives us richly all things to enjoy". We are so abundantly blessed with good things! Let's never take our Father for granted, but use wisely and gratefully all that He has given us. God gives blessing to us so we can give glory to Him.
