Psalm 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it”
Ever play “Where is Waldo?” This is a mind game of sorts where you have to find a cartoon character in among many other things on the page; people are challenged to find a character named Waldo hidden within the group. It can be entertaining but also frustrating; just as frustrating as it can be when we are searching for God and we do not see him. Unlike Waldo, God is everywhere and in everything; you don’t have to search hard to find him. For the Christian, as Scripture proclaims, everything belongs to God. We manage the property of our Lord. Since everything belongs to Christ, we need to have the attitude and view that our things are His things. We are mere leasers of the property, money, relationships, talents, time, and even our lives. That means all that we are and all that we have are not really ours to begin with. They belong to God. So, our duty is to learn how to become responsible stewards of our Lord’s resources entrusted into our care. It means to manage everything to the best of our abilities for His glory (1 Cor. 4:2). God is our everything! God loves Ya;)
