Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

Spending Time with God

As God’s people, we must be careful not to draw our identity and security from our positions or possessions. Jesus directs us not to store up treasures on earth but rather store up treasures in heaven. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). Our challenge is to stay detached from worldly things and surrender all that we are and have to the Lord and ask Him to guide us in using them for His glory. Only by spending time in God’s Word, in prayer, and participation in the Lord’s Table can we receive the faith and strength needed to follow God’s will and focus on Him.

Prayer: Dear Lord, grant me strength so I can resist the worldly temptations that I face daily. Use me in Your service. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
