Stewardship

11 Sep

     Stewardship, it’s about more than just money.  It’s about Life.  It’s about all of the decisions we make, and how we manage all of the resources of our lives.  Resources such as money, time, relationships, information, health, property and even the environment.   Resources that may be in our possession or sometimes in the possession of others.   It’s about getting the most out of life through careful planning and management of those resources.  It originated as the compounding of two words that when translated meant house guardian.  The purpose of a guardian is to protect possession and life.  John 10:10 tells us that Satan, the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, But I came that they may have life and have life more abundantly.   So in essence Stewardship is the guardian that protects you from the thief and secures the abundant life that God has for you.  Poor stewardship makes you vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy.  But good stewardship secures the abundant life that God has created for you.  Stewardship, it’s about more than just money.  It’s about life!
