Stewardship is More than Money
Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing all of life and life’s resources for God’s purpose.
“He has given each one of us a special gift according to the generosity of Christ…He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evan-gelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.”
—Ephesians 4:7, 11, 12 (New Living Translation)
Each one will want to give of their time and talent to serve others.
