Spirituality for Life in all aspects
Everything belongs to God
We are stewards of God’s gifts
Gratitude, responsibility, sharing return with increase (Luke 12:48)
Practical expression is our use of Time, Talent and Treasure
“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10)
The Christian Steward is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increases to the Lord.
