God gives us what we want and need when we treat our possessions with respect. If we don’t use our money in a way that honors God, we are acting out of greed and using our money to satisfy our desires. God can be honored with our possessions in three ways: 1) good stewardship, 2) growth-orientedness, and 3) purposefulness.
When we give God the best of what we have, God gives us what we want and need. If we refuse to use our money in a way that honors God, we are acting out of greed and using our money to satisfy our wants. We can honor God with our possessions in three ways:
It’s not enough to care about God’s world. One way to honor God is to try to make everything He has given us grow. Matthew 25:14–30 tells the story of the talents, which you should remember. The Master gave his money to three servants to take care of. When their Master came back, he called those who were able to double the money he gave them “good” and “faithful.” But the third servant was called lazy and evil because all he did with the money given to him was bury it.
We show God how much we value what He has given us by making more money.
The way we take care of God’s wealth and help it grow must be in line with what God wants. So, what does God want to do? They are: to help our families, to help the poor and needy, and to move God’s Kingdom forward. When we use God’s money and resources for these things, we really do what He wants and honor Him.
Renunciation is a good trait we learn by ensuring that our money and possessions are only in line with God’s will and not ours. It teaches us not to be greedy and to give up what we already have. Why? Because we don’t own the things we have. They belong to God in the end.
