I’m taking a stewardship class at church and,- let me say, I’ve learned a lot. It has me re-evaluating my entire life.
I understand that nothing we have is truly ours. Everything, yes, I mean everything, that we think we own technically belongs to God. He allows us to borrow it and manage it for the time we are on earth. #ouch
Story time: As someone who has loaned someone stuff, I realize that nothing makes you more upset than to loan something to someone and they don’t take care of it. This irks the heck out of me. For instance, if I let you borrow my shoes and you are walking on the back of them – run me those shoes right back, immediately!
As I took this class, I realized this is how God feels when he provides us with resources, and we aren’t good managers of the things he gave us. 😣He gives us talents and financial resources and we continuously are wasteful.
This class is eye-opening for me because I enjoy traveling. I am the queen of #tripbooked when I could be using that money to be debt free. So now, instead of taking any trip at any given time, I’ll be a planner and start saving up for a few bigger trips for next year vs. taking every trip that pops up on my radar. #woosah I get anxiety just thinking about it. 🙃 I need to be a better caretaker of the resources He’s given me.
Scripture of the Day: Yes! Everything in heaven, everything on earth; the kingdom all yours! You’ve raised yourself high over all. Riches and glory come from you, you’re ruler over all; You hold strength and power in the palm of your hand to build up and strengthen all.
