Think about this statement for a moment: God owns everything. What comes to mind? Do you believe that? Do you live in light of that? This passage from 1 Chronicles 29 gives us three keys to unlocking God’s wisdom for financial freedom: you must yield to God’s ownership, by acknowledging Him as the source for all that you have, and live a life of gratitude and dependence. Its not easy at first, but this is God’s design for the pursuit of lasting treasure and ultimate joy. Rather than being slaves to our possessions, God wants to us experience the freedom and joy that can only come by acknowledging His Lordship over our lives and our possessions. God isn’t after our money, but He is after our hearts.


1 Chronicles 29:10–14
