Property Manager – Episode #117

We enter the world with nothing and we leave with the same. This was the message in church (TCC) last Sunday. God owns it all and we are simply the managers. Ultimately, we own nothing. The question was asked, “How much money did Steve Jobs leave behind.” The answer is simple… “All of it.” You can’t take it with you. We only leave our legacy.

In the past I have found myself in awe of others possessions, life styles, and attributes.  I’ve recently caught myself daydreaming about how simple life would be if I won the lottery.  I had to remind myself that these are material desires.  There’s a bigger picture to focus on.

SN: You have to play to win (and I don’t play) and even if you play the odds of winning are 1 to 8 zillion. The lottery is a hoax that feeds on the emotions of the lower/middle class. But, that’s another topic for another day.

I digress…

In all honesty, there’s a reason I’m not a millionaire (yet) and that I don’t own a large corperation (yet). There’s a reason I am where I am. I’m not ready to be anywhere else.  Luke 16:10 NIV says, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” God needs to know that I can handle the little things before being trusted with the great big things.

Be trustworthy.  Be patient.  Become Better.
