For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the hills, and all that moves in the field is mine. Psalm 50 makes one thing perfectly clear - God owns everything. God created the universe, so it's only logical that He owns everything in it. Today, Rob West welcomes financial expert Ron Blue to explore this biblical principle. How should it guide our use of the resources God's given us? Ron Blue has written several great books about how Christians as stewards only should manage our finances. Today we're looking at "Never Enough," specifically a chapter titled, "Who Owns It?" God owns everything, whether we acknowledge His ownership or not. If I fully believe that God owns it all, I enter a sacred and beautiful trust that extends far beyond my tithe or my year-end giving. If God owns it all, I become free to view life as a great adventure with Him, stewarding my all for His glory. Ron uses the Parable of the Talents to illustrate that God gives us resources to serve His purposes. God uses money to get to (and change) our hearts. He does this in three ways: as a tool, as a test, and as a testimony. Ron then talks about how he encourages believers who might struggle with the concept that God owns it all, and we're merely stewards. In today's show we also answer your questions: My husband and I are debt free. We have money in a money market account. Should we be considering a different option that might be better for us? Are business owners allowed to make a salary payment to their children in a pretax fashion? What can you tell me about buying points to boost your credit score?
