Every human being is basically, consistently and irretrievably self-centered. This is a universal truth. God knows this and that is the reason every command of God is predicated upon the assumption of self-interest. For example we are told “Give”. Why? That “it will be given unto you”. Self-interest. Again “judge not”. Why? “Lest you be judged”. Self-interest. The Bible establishes the fact that God is the Owner; man is the steward, not even a partner. “All things were made through Him, and without Him was nothing made that was made” (John 1:3). God not only owns the natural world, He also owns all living creatures according to their kinds. We must therefore exercise faithful stewardship in order to benefit from God’s gift in every area of divine provision including natural, spiritual physical, environmental, business. Personal stewardship is the best means of expressing gratitude to God for his love to us in Christ.
