Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

Faithful Stewards of Our Time

Today is a very important day to make our lives meaningful. Yesterday is history, and tomorrow may never come. At some point in life, we start asking, “Where did the months and the years go?” Time is an irreplaceable commodity that God grants us, a precious period of opportunity for fulfilling the purposes for which we exist. Wise use of time starts by living a life for Christ. If our time, energy, and focus are only on material wealth or other worldly successes, our time has been wasted.

While we must spend time providing for our needs, our life’s purpose must be to do the Lord’s work. We were born to serve our Creator. Jesus, Who “did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28), is our model. We are called to bring people to Christ and serve others based on gifts given to us by God. Ignoring God’s plan for our lives will result in anguish and despair.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for all my blessings especially the gift of my time. Help me to use my time wisely and to use it in ways that honor You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
