Devotional – Caretakers
By Kit Pharo – Colorado Rancher
“In the 50th Psalm, verse 10 tells us that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Not only does God own the cattle, he also owns the hills. In verse 12, God says, “. . . for the world is mine, and all that is in it.”
God created and, therefore, owns all that we see around us. As ranchers and cattlemen we are only caretakers, responsible for the well-being of the land and the cattle God has entrusted to us. That is an awesome responsibility, but most of us feel very fortunate to be able to do what we are doing. Millions of people in this country and around the world would jump at an opportunity to trade places with us. God has been good to us and we have much to be thankful for.
Take time to visit with God today. Thank him for the many blessings you have received. Don’t forget that many of the blessings you received came with responsibilities.”
May God’s Will be Done
on Earth as it is in Heaven
