Being Faithful Stewards
Our stewardship is the expression of our faith as we manage our lives and resources for God’s purposes. It is the wise management of who we are and all that we have. God has chosen us as His stewards and grants us the wonderful privilege to serve Him. He also equips and empowers us for service. As He molds and transforms us into His stewards, we acknowledge that everything in this life is a sacred trust from Him. God is the source and owner of all things. He allows us to use His creation and intends it for our good.
Our stewardship is seen in our words and actions. Our acts of stewardship become more Christ-like as our relationship with Jesus grows. Out of love and gratitude for our Savior Who has redeemed us, we are eager to perform our stewardship activities. Through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we become faithful stewards who respond willingly and joyfully to God’s love, goodness, and mercy. Through faith, we are empowered to do as God directs us in 1 Peter 4:10: “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, grant me wisdom and faith to be a faithful steward. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
