Are You The Owner?

money, dollarsScripture: Proverbs 23:26

My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways.” (NIV)

Q: “What is the process of withdrawing money from the bank of mammon and depositing it in the bank of heaven?”

 “What is the process of withdrawing money from the bank of mammon and depositing it in the bank of heaven?”

We recently received this question from a reader of the KingdomNomics book.

Withdrawing funds from the bank of mammon and depositing them in the bank of heaven is basically an attitude. Our attitude toward ourselves and everything we have changes as we cultivate our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Who owns us? Who owns what we have in our possession?

KingdomNomics thinkers come to the realization that we are a steward of the time, talent, and resources God has entrusted to us. God is the owner. He bought us with the precious shed blood of his Son.

The first KingdomNomics Applied devotional cites Proverbs – My son, give me your heart. If God has our heart, he has everything related to us including the money entrusted to us. Every good and perfect gift comes from heaven. Everything, including every breath and heartbeat, is sourced in God.

Thus, by an act of our will, we choose to withdraw funds from the bank of mammon and deposit them in the bank of heaven.

Prayer: Lord, I am yours. What I have, Lord, is yours. Take me: my time, talent, and resources. Exponentially multiply them for the advancement of your kingdom.

Today, ask yourself:

Have I decided who owns what I possess? In which bank are my “funds” deposited?
