Biblical principles of stewardship

We need the right ATTITUDE:

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights …” (James 1v17)

“What do you have that you did not receive?

If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?” (1 Cor 4v17)

and one who is dishonest in very little is also dishonest in much.” (Luke 16v10)

and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” (Eph 5v8/10)

We need to take faith filled ACTION:

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another,

as good stewards of God's varied grace” (1 Peter 4v9-10)
