Stewardship is focused on helping us use our time, treasures and talents better to serve God.
What God has first given us
BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES OF STEWARDSHIP:
- Everything we have comes from God – we are merely stewards or “trustees”.
- Giving is a joyful, thankful response to what God has first given us
- Stewardship is sacrificial and proportional – not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice
- Stewardship is a discipline; it is regular and intentional
- We give because we need to give; it is a divine expectation ~ not simply to meet the budget
Pledge – this year we will pledge and include the pledge amount on the giving record
Growth – 1% in level of stewardship, working toward a tithe
Joyful – giving with love and with a smile
Where is your heart?
“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
A stewardship “attitude” brings an understanding that we are gifted with all our blessings that flow from God. God has given us the talents and skills necessary to provide us with the means to produce a fruitful and satisfying life. It is therefore in a thankful response that we then offer a small portion of the gifts back to God, so that they might then become a blessing to others.
Reflect on the ways you share the blessings that God have given you with others ~ consider how you offer your time, talents and treasures.
