The Bible has plenty to say about stewardship. There are over 2000 verses about money and possessions in the Bible! In the Gospels about 16 out of 38 parables deal with money. Let’s look at three stewardship truths for a generous and fulfilling life.
#1. God owns it all
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
We are the stewards and God is the owner. He is not just the owner, He owns it all. This is a biblical principle that is central to the Scriptures.
#2. Every giving and spending decision is a spiritual decision
If God owns it all, every giving or tithing decision is a spiritual decision, and every spending decision is a spiritual decision as well. Everything from buying a car to buying groceries or paying off debt is therefore a spiritual decision.
#3. God wants you to grow spiritually
His master said to him. “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master”. Matt. 25:21
God is using the money and material possessions he has given us to be a testimony to the world. We are not to be anxious about finances and things that are temporary. We have been called to be salt and light and we also have been called to be servants. Our time, talents and finances can be used powerfully at home and around the globe for the glory of God.
As faithful stewards there is much to thank God for. We look forward to the Lord saying to us “ Well done, good and faithful Servant”.
