Devotional: All Things Are Yours
In 1 Corinthians 3, in the midst of a series of corrections to the church, encourages them to never live beneath their means. In life, we hear the opposite: don’t live above your means. But Paul, aware of our generous and benevolent God, implores us to never live below our spiritual means, because “all things are yours.” When a sense of insecurity, insignificance in your own abilities or place in life creeps in, remember, all things are yours.
