Stewardship


Use of Time, Talents, and Treasure Reflect Our Passions PDF Print

 

Stewardship means “belonging to God" - all that we are and all that we have comes from God. We are grateful to God for it all, and responsible to God for how we use it. There is a connection between stewardship and spirituality: generous giving as a spiritual discipline helps us to grow in Christ. “Duty and delight” are both motivating factors for giving - doing what we ought to do as responsible church members, and making cheerful sacrifices out of love for God.  Dr. Mark Powell says, “This is good news!” Regarding our treasure, the biblical message of financial stewardship is:

• promising and encouraging;
• not (usually) guilt-inducing;
• a way of life;
• for many of us, it just may be the way to a better life.

 

From Biblical Stewardship: Our Duty and Delight, a course by Dr. Mark Allan Powell, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio
