When You Own It: Freedom
Our third message in the Jesus on Money series this message is titled “When You Own It: Freedom.” This ownership is, of course, a qualified ownership. It is you owning the money in contrast to money owning you. The reality for Christ followers is that you don’t actually own it so much as you are a steward or manager of what God owns. “The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell in it,” says King David in Psalm 24:1. And the language of Jesus reinforces that truth. More often than not, he uses an illustration of a steward or manager in his teachings about money.
Getting that perspective gives us a further reason to rightly handle the money that comes into our hands month by month. This weekend we will get the Bible open again to see what Jesus has to say about the money he has given to us.
