Owning It

By Linda Tancs

A popular phrase these days is “owning it,” meaning that you take responsibility for the outcome or decision you made. In the spiritual realm, the term has no meaning because we don’t own anything (Mark 12:17). We are stewards. Our entire being, all of our outcomes and decisions, for better or worse, belong to Him. That doesn’t mean, of course, that we abdicate any responsibility for what we do on earth. Just don’t hang on to your outcomes like possessions. Instead, acknowledge that everything you are belongs to Him and allow Him to shape you as He sees fit (Isaiah 64:8).
