Workers vs Owners

God was saying that the people would one day possess land in Canaan, but in God’s plan, only God’s ownership was absolute. He wanted his people to avoid greed and materialism. If you have the attitude that you are taking care of the Lord’s property, you will make what you have more available to others. This is difficult to do if you have an attitude of ownership. Think of yourself as a manager of all that is under your care, not as an owner.

“The land must never be sold on a permanent basis, for the land belongs to me. You are only foreigners and tenant farmers working for me. – Leviticus 25:23
