Life of Adventure with God
As we get outside of ourselves and bless others, we are blessed. And that’s what it means to live life on an HNL, a ‘hole ‘notha level. God is teaching me constantly about this principal using little things, insignificant things, to hammer this huge concept home.
Well, here is what I have discovered as I have lived my life of adventure with God. I have discovered that I am not an owner; I am simply a manager. Have you discovered that? Sure in your heart of hearts you call yourself a Christ-follower. And if you’re not a Christ-follower, listen, but you don’t understand what I’m saying.
If you’re a Christ follower, though, you don’t own jack. “Well, Ed, yes I do, man. I own my house. I own this building. I own my car.” Oh, really? Well do this for me. Stop paying taxes and see what happens. Oh, you own your land? Really? You own that building? Okay, just don’t pay taxes. You don’t own anything nor do I.
Everything has been given to us by the grace of God, every single thing we have. That’s why every single financial decision that we make is a spiritual decision. Every single financial decision that we make—no matter how small, no matter how large—is significant. And it is spiritual because scripture tells us time and time again, one of the major ways to tell if Jesus is number one, if he is running the show, if he is driving the car, if he is in the corner office, is to just look at our money.
