Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

Demonstrating our Faithfulness

We show our faithfulness to the Lord by faithfully managing the resources, responsibilities, and gifts He entrusts to us.  The Apostle Paul wrote, “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2).  We are to be faithful in our witnessing (Philemon 6), in expressing love to others (Galatians 6:10), in prayer (Romans 12:12), in our giving (1 Corinthians 16:2), and in all things.  Peter teaches, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10).  The writer of Hebrews tells us that only what we do in faith is pleasing to God (Hebrews 11:6).  Our actions mean little to God unless they come from loving and faithful hearts.  Faithfully managing all that God has entrusted to us demonstrates our faith and is pleasing to Him.

 

Prayer: Dear Father, Almighty God, I thank You for my faith.  I pray that my faith will be evident in all that I do and say.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

 

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
