Because of our hard work and toil, we often take personal credit for our financial success by saying, “My power and strength of my hands have produced wealth for me” (Deuteronomy 8:17). How easy it is for us to say, “It’s my money!” However, God reminded the people of Israel as God does that God gives us the ability, energy and skill to produce wealth. Through Moses, God said, “Remember the LORD your God, for it is He Who gives you the ability to produce wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18). We need to remember that without God we don’t exist and without God our wealth doesn’t exist. For more info on stewardship, please contact Max Buban.
About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
