How can we be good stewards and manage what God has entrusted us?
Recognize that we own nothing, and God owns everything!
-Deuteronomy 10:14 says everything in heaven and on earth belongs to the Lord.
-James 1:17 says every good gift comes from God.
-1 Corinthians 6:16 says we belong to God.
Recognize we are not called to be owners but faithful stewards.
1 Corinthians 4:2 says we must be faithful stewards, or managers, of what belongs to God and what He has put in our care.
WHAT IS STEWARDSHIP?
Stewardship is the management of our abilities, opportunities, energy, and money for godly priorities. All that we are and all that we have, belong to God. We must leverage all He’s given us for His glory and the things of eternity. (See Matthew 25:14-30)
WHY GOD BLESSES US…
God has blessed all of us individually and uniquely with a level of ability to impact kingdom priorities. A “talent” in Jesus’ day was both a measure of weight and a large sum of money. Each servant was given a measure of “talent” according to their own ability (See Matthew 25:16-19).
PRAISE GOD FOR THIS…
God will not hold you accountable for how much you have, only for what you do with it (See Luke 12:48)!
If you invest your life into the eternal instead of the temporal, God will find you faithful (see Matthew 25:21)!
You have but one life, and it will soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last.
