Stewardship

(Customize for parish here)


Question for Reflection

  • Complete the “My Gifts” self-assessment

  • Discuss with one another: What are some of the gifts you have been given? In what ways do you share those gifts with God and with others?


A Sign of God’s Truth

  • It is the responsibility of the married couple to let themselves be a visible sign of God’s truth

  • Every good gift comes from God (James 1:17)


Stewardship

  • Stewardship – the way in which we use our gifts and share them with others

  • Stewardship calls us to share with others in ways that give them a glimpse of God himself and, in turn, lead them to give glory to God (Matthew 5:16)


The Holy Trinity and Stewardship

  • Although there is disparity in the world, the cooperation and giving within our families demonstrate good stewardship

  • Children – “the supreme gift of marriage”

    • Husband and wife are imaging God’s creative power

    • Parents image God in the ways in which they provide for their children


Stewardship and the Image of Jesus and the Church

  • Self-sacrificing love

  • Stewardship of time

  • Crosses we bear together


Budgeting

  • Don’t buy what you can’t afford

  • Don’t get into unsecured debt

  • Plan for emergencies

  • Focus on needs first

  • Learn the art of compromise

  • Don’t keep secrets from one another

  • See “The Family Budget” p. 58
