"Rejoice always, pray continuously, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
What is Stewardship?
In its purest form, stewardship is an entire way of life. It is a spirituality in which gratitude is our primary expression of faithful discipleship. As Christian stewards, we see and respond to both God and the world through a life of thanksgiving and joy. Rooted in the biblical principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus, stewardship is the work of the Holy Spirit. Through God's grace, our stewardship is a continuous conversion of mind and heart that recognizes God's unfailing goodness in all things.
The Stewardship Way of Life has four key components:
1. To receive the gifts of the Lord gratefully
2. To nurture or develop our gifts responsibly
3. To share our gifts sacrificially, justly, and lovingly
4. To return our gifts to the Lord with increase
By keeping these stewardship components at the forefront of all aspects of our life, we can truly live in such a way that reflects our core belief:
Everything we have
Everything we are
Is a gift from God
