Stewarding God’s Treasure (1-21-2018)

Stewarding God’s Treasure (1-21-2018)
Listen


Stewardship is not just about finances and passing the offering plate.  Basing her sermon on Malachi 3:10-12 and Matthew 6:19-24, Pastor Beth helped us see anew that is more than that–it’s “whole-life stewardship” as futurist Tom Sine has written.

Beth also pointed us to John Westerhoff’s (Building God’s People in a Materialistic Society, 1983) definition: “Stewardship is nothing less than a complete life-style, a total accountability and responsibility before God.  Stewardship is what we do after we say we believe, that is, after we give our love, loyalty, and trust to God, from whom each and every aspect of our lives comes as a gift.  As members of God’s household, we are subject to God’s economy of stewardship, that is, God’s plan to reconcile the whole world and bring creation to its proper end.”
