A Stewardship Minute: January 2015
Inspiring a deeper understanding of true giving
“In looking to the coming year, remember that rooted deeply and firmly within scripture and our Christian tradition is the vision that we are expected to be faithful stewards of all we are and all we have.”
Those last few words are from the January issue of Stewardship: We are expected to be faithful stewards of all we are and all we have. Now that is a challenge, isn’t it? The newsletter reminds us that since we are starting a New Year, some Christians will be making resolutions. And since it quotes one Christian who is making some vows to strengthen his spiritual life, it surely will help us all to know those vows.
One vow is to spend time with the Lord daily. It is spiritually helpful to spend time in prayer, vowing to keep in touch with our Creator. Many Christians read portions of the Bible daily. That holy Word offers great wisdom for living a fruitful and meaningful life. Another resolution is to serve God by using one’s talent and time. Let God lead you to the needy people in your community. Did you know that the Salvation Army, Goodwill Industries, St. Vincent DePaul’s charity work, and Habitat for Humanity were all started by Christian groups? The point is that Christians are intended to work in the hurting places of the world. God uses people to be Christ’s servants; people like us who will dare to be good stewards of our time, our talents, and our resources wherever there is a need. Let get to work!
PRAYER: Dear Lord, our blessings are many and our challenges are often many, as well. Guide us and enable us to have the wisdom and strength to serve you in this wonderful world you have given us. In Christ's name. Amen
