Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
We would be very wise to remember that it is God that has made us and we ourselves. We are His creation. It was He and His great power that gave me all that I have and all that I am.
It is so easy to begin thinking that I did something in my life. To think that I made myself.
It is easy to get selfish with the life, the talents, the time, and the treasure that He has given me. I want to rebel and remind Him that I am doing Him a favor to serve Him.
That is the opposite of the Biblical attitude. I belong to Him. All I have belong to Him. I am to live for Him. My family belongs to Him.
