We can’t give things to God… He already owns it all.
The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; Psalm 24:1
for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. Psalm 50:10
'The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty. Haggai 2:8
Stewardship is less about giving than about obedience.
1 Sam. 15:22 “Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice.”
To obey is better than sacrifice I don’t need your money I want your life And I hear you say that I’m coming back soon But you act like I’ll never return
To obey is better than sacrifice I want more than Sunday and Wednesday Nights Cause if you can’t come to me every day Then don’t bother coming at all Lyrics from Keith Green, “To Obey is Better Than Sacrifice”
Keep a loose grip instead of a tight grip on your possessions
You are not your own, you are bought with at a price.” 1 Cor. 6:19-20
