“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad indeed.” Psalm 126:3
When you think of Christian Stewardship, do you think only in terms of the annual Stewardship Campaign? That is one element, but there are other dynamics that we need to consider if we are to understand Christian stewardship and our roles as “ Stewards. ”
As Christians, we live in community and are the caretakers of God’s abundance. We are responsible to be good stewards of all our resources – resources we tend to think belong to us. All that we are and all that we have comes from and belongs to God.
Being good stewards means more than pledging to the annual campaign, or contributing to the latest parish fundraiser. It is about more than spending several hours a week at church studying, praying, or working. It is about more than our personal talents to further God’s work in our communities.
It is about discipleship and our relationship with God and with each other. It is about using everything we have – our time, our talents, our treasure in thanksgiving for all God’s blessings. Think about it – what we express to God about what He has given us is called thanksgiving. What we do with all of it is called Stewardship.
