The Eye Opener

Monday, April 3, 2017

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and all things therein contained. There is nothing on earth that God didn’t put here.

True, we have manufactured things by changing sizes, shapes or chemical combinations, but all things made by man can be reduced to those elements that God originally put here on earth. All things, therefore, are God’s, and He put them here for our use. He did not intend that we should hoard up surpluses and thus deprive others of their use. 

Our responsibility begins in our use of these surpluses. It’s God’s, not ours, remember? And some of God’s loved ones are in want.
