Stewardship is an EXPRESSION of FAITH

By Allen Moyer, Stewardship Chair

In the Bible there are many examples of “good” and “bad” stewards. (See Matthew 21:33-43, 24:45-51, 25:14-30 and Luke 16:1-10) – Good stewards are described as being faithful, wise, and trustworthy.

Bad stewardship is not just a matter of negligence or carelessness but often a fundamental misunderstanding or false claim regarding ownership – Sometimes we forget that the property entrusted to us is actually not our own.

We all live in this world as stewards of God, entrusted with caring for all that God so generously allows us to use. We own nothing but manage everything.

God trusts us in a way that we are reluctant to trust each other (or ourselves) and places confidence in us beyond anything that our record thus far would seem to warrant. We should at least realize what a high privilege it is, to be stewards of God.

We offer with joy and thanksgiving what you have first given us – ourselves, our time, and our possessions…

Paraphrased from Giving to God by Mark Allan Powell.
