Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

A Life of Service

As God’s stewards, we are called to serve.  As Christians saved by grace, we recognize our need to live a life of servanthood.

“…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:26-28).  Just as Jesus came to serve, we have the same privilege to serve others through our time, talents, and treasures.  Through our service, we become more like Jesus.

Prayer:  Dear Lord, You alone lived the perfect life of stewardship.  Your life on earth gave us example after example of helping the needy and serving others, showing us how to carry on the work You left for us to do.  Grant us faith to follow Your example so we will be the serving people that You want us to be.  Use us, Lord, as Your feet, mouths, and hands to help others.  In Your precious name we pray.  Amen.

Blessings on your stewardship journey!
