Now, perhaps, we can see our lives as God sees them. We are stewards, not owners. Everything we have, everything we are, including life itself, is an entrustment from God to be invested in service to him and our neighbor. Whatever talent we have was given to invest in His service. Whatever time we have is to be invested in our neighbors. Whatever money we have is His and is to be used for Him. Of course, like all stewards we are to take part of what he gives to meet our legitimate needs, but even that is His, though He is very glad for our use of it.
