Stewards of God’s Creation
We are the climax of God’s creation, and we are chosen for a special place in the world. We have been given dominion over the earth under the supreme control of God. This authority is a trust relationship with God, as we seek to achieve God’s purposes in the use of our bodies and the material resources He’s given us. We are to be God’s representatives and responsible managers in the world. Material things are for our physical care, enjoyment, fuller life, and service to others. Both the Old and New Testaments show that life is not intended to be something to be endured, but to be celebrated with Christ as the center in the community of the Body.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the majesty of Your creation. Grant me faith to be a faithful steward of all that You entrust to me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
