eSeed: The World Owes Me A Living

Read Romans 1:14-16 NKJ

A Socialist criticized Andrew Carnegie for being so rich. “Wealth,” he said, “wasn’t meant to be saved, but shared.”

Carnegie asked his secretary for an assessment of everything he owned. Then he checked on the population of the world. He figured a bit and said, “Give this man sixteen cents. That’s his share of my wealth.”

Many say, “The world owes me a living.” It doesn’t. You owe it a life.

God made this clear in the beginning. After creating Adam and Eve, He said, “Fill the earth and subdue it.” According to the Bible we owe the world initiative and industry, service and salvation.

St. Paul believed it. He said, “I am a debtor.” What do you say?

Prayer: We long, Father, to attract men and women to Thee. Make our hearts to glow with Thy gladness, our feet to go with Thy gospel, and our hands to give to Thy glory: through Christ. Amen.
