Have you ever thought about material possessions? Who owns them anyway?

A wealthy farmer invited his minister to his farm. He took him to the top of the hill and waived his hand over the landscape. He said: “Pastor, you recently said in a sermon that no-one really owns anything, that it all belongs to God. If I don’t own these acres, who does?”

On that beautiful hillside created by the living God, this farmer learned a most valuable lesson. This life is but a vapor. Only pride leads us to believe that we really “own” anything.

Always try to remember –

“The Earth is the Lords and everything in it.” [Psalm 24:1]
