Complete the Deed

Below is an exercise called “The Deed”. It is designed to help you recognize God’s ownership of your possessions. We use the term Deed because it is often used in reference to transferring property, which is exactly what you will be doing in this exercise.

As a college student, you may find that you don’t have a ton of possessions. I would encourage you to think not only of possessions but also of the things that you highly value. These may not have a lot of monetary significance but could have a lot of emotional value and investment.

Here’s how you complete the Deed:

a. Insert today’s date at the top. Then print your name in the space “From”, because you are doing the transferring.

b. There is a large blank space for you to enter the items you are transferring to God’s ownership. Please spend time praying about this decision before making any entries.

c. During your small group time, share what you wrote on your Deed as a way to help hold you accountable to recognize God’s continuing ownership.
