A right sense of ownership resolves conflict

The question of who owns what tends to stir up conflict. Whether it’s siblings fighting over a toy, ranchers in a legal battle over water rights, or nations warring to control a strip of land, possession of something and the rights that go with it are all too often the source of contention.

Yet the Bible tells us in many passages that everything belongs to God. “All that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine,” declares First Chronicles 29:11. “Every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.…. for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof,” says Psalms 50, verses 10 and 12.
