Who owns the money that you have? Who owns the cash in your wallet? Who owns your paycheck? Who owns your bank account? Who owns the equity in your house? Who owns your stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and investments? In other words, whose money is it?
The truth about money is this: You don't own a single penny. The reason why you didn't bring it into the world and why you can't carry it out is because it doesn't belong to you to begin with. Whether it is gold, silver, copper or greenback, all of it belongs to God. It is His money and it is not ours to hold. It is His for us to manage.
"Jesus Christ has a claim on you. He signed it in His own blood. He died on a cross to pay for your sins andnot just to pay for your sins, but to pay for you." --Dr. Merritt
