The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness of it,
The world, and those who dwell in it.
For He has founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the streams and the rivers.
Who may ascend onto the mountain of the LORD?
And who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to what is false,
Nor has sworn [oaths] deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation (Psalms 24:1-5).
Because everything in this earth belongs to the Lord G_d and we are only the steward, we are responsible for his possession. G_d gives us children in the same vein and we are responsible for those children that are, for their upbringing, for providing for them and training them in the way of righteousness. What we do with G_d’s possession is how we will be judged.
Thank you for all that you put in my hands to take care of today. May you be proud of me for what I do and how I do it. Watch over my family and families in all that I do.
