and All These things
Good stewardship is the ‘effective and faithful management of another’s resources in order to achieve the owner’s objective’
What does this mean for us? We are all stewards entrusted with talents, material possession, experiences and relationships by GOD. As the owner, GOD is expecting that we manage these things in such a way that His objective for each is achieved.
The first rule and thrust of stewardship “Seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD, and all His righteousness, and all these things, will be added unto you.” – Matthew 6: 33
The journey of stewardship is one of accepting that GOD is the owner and we are managers, partnering with Him, to establish His kingdom here on earth and to achieve His will for our lives.
Stewardship creates accountability and produces good results in the earth. Ultimately, it brings Him glory!
Although it may sound daunting, there is a freedom that comes with handing over control to Him.
His word provides the insight to live this journey of stewardship with joy.
It is my hope that this platform will be a movement of sorts, to raise a consciousness and a level of intentionality about how we use the resources He has entrusted to us. Why? Because how we use all these things matters to Him.
“The earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein”- Psalm 24:1
- GOD is calling on us to Seek His will for our lives and the course of our stewardship.
- Evaluate the things He has entrusted to us as we continuously seek His perspective.
- Invest these things as He instructed.
- Experience the Harvest that results from joyful stewardship.
Along this stewardship journey, He requires that we pursue His will at every step; that’s the essence of relationship.
Why is stewardship so important?
Stewardship relates to how we walk out the calling GOD has placed on our lives. A consciousness of this concept ensures that we run this race well.
At the end of the day, He wants to say to each of us, “well done, thou good and faithful steward!”
