What is stewardship?

Friday, Jan. 23, 2015
What is stewardship? Stewardship is often thought of as a gimmick to get people to give, kind of like money blessed with holy water. While the dictionary defines stewardship as “the individual’s responsibility to manage his life and property with proper regard to the rights of others,” the Christian definition involves each person’s responsibility to God for his or her time, talents and treasure. The faithful and wise steward is one who knows that the Master has set him/her in charge of his household and gives him/her his portion of food at the proper time.(Luke 12:42)
Stewardship embraces a way of life, and thus becomes a lifestyle. It calls upon us to realize we are not owners of our time, talent and treasure; rather, we are stewards, called upon by God to manage our gifts by being responsible to God, who entrusts them to us.
