as good stewards of God's varied grace.

What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is a way of life, a life of accountability and responsibility acknowledging God as Creator and Giver of all. Stewardship involves responsible management of our God-given resources of time, talent, and treasure. Stewards as disciples of Jesus Christ see themselves as caretakers of all God's gifts. Gratitude for these gifts is expressed in prayer, worship, offering and action by eagerly sharing our gifts out of love for God and one another.
 

Reflection Questions

  • What resources, talents, and abilities has God given me? Do I use them in service to others?
  • If I am to work to be an effective Christian steward, with the help of God's grace, what will it cost me in terms of personal sacrifice and hardship? Am I willing to do this?
  • How can I be of help to others in recognizing and using the gifts that they've been given?
