The Journey with Ron Moore

The Generous Gift of Community | Romans 12:13 | Devotional

Romans 12:13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

At some point, each believer has to deal with this question: What am I supposed to do with all the resources God has given me? We know the points of stewardship—God owns everything. Everything we have is a gift from him. Therefore, we should thankfully use all our resources to honor him. But it’s one thing to know those truths in our head; it’s another to accept them in our heart. It’s only twelve inches from the head to the heart, but it’s a long journey that some believers never make.

I don’t know the specific purpose for your possessions. But I do know four things:

  • They are to be shared; not hoarded.
  • They are to be used to meet your needs…and the needs of others.
  • Your heart always follows your investments ( Matthew 6:21 ).
  • You can’t serve God and money.

That’s the general stuff. Now specifically, what does God want you to do with all the resources he has given you?

Father, may we be thankful and purposeful. Show us what you want us to do with your resources. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
