Living a Life of Stewardship
"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace" (1 Pt 4:10).
True Christian Stewardship is about acknowledging all that we have as a gift, being grateful to our Heavenly Father for what we have been given, cultivating our gifts in a responsible way, and sharing them lovingly with others.
When was the last time you spent time acknowledging your gifts? Our loved ones, the dinner on our table, the sunset out our window, the air in our lungs. These are God's gifts to us. If we stop and contemplate them, gratitude fills us as we realize all that we have been given. Many people spend the majority of prayer time with prayers of petition - asking for needs. Stewardship is about communicating with God in a spirit of profound gratitude.
