Author Don Gray wrote, “Biblical stewardship is not God’s way of raising money—it is God’s way of raising people into the likeness of His Son.” God has called us to be His stewards. As stewards, we manage the property that God has entrusted to us. Our activity and deeds as stewards is our stewardship. Stewardship can be defined as stewards living out their faith in response to God’s love, grace, and mercy. Stewards are empowered by God’s grace to use their lives and blessings to do God’s will. Through His Word and Sacraments, God changes and molds us into His likeness. As changed people, we live out our lives in thankful response to Who God is and what He has done for us, which is stewardship.
Prayer: Dear good and gracious Heavenly Father, thank You for calling me to be Your faith. Place in me the faith that will enable me to be a faithful steward. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
