Stewardship “The Fellowship of the Ministering to the Saints”
I was told by one pastor years ago that you can determine the state of a believer’s heart by how tightly or loosely he holds on to his wallet. This may be true; however, our stewardship includes more that just our monies. It scratches upon our very hearts! How much of us does God own of our daily applications as his sons and daughters?
The grace of giving involves our time, our talents, and our tithes.
Outward situations should not affect our stewardship unto others. Despite our great trials and deep poverty, God desires that we give first of ourselves to Him before we support the work of the Lord. Poverty is not an excuse to hinder our giving to the Lord's work. Giving is not a grace only for the rich or the middle class. Many in the early church were slaves, how much do you think they earned? Yet they gave.
I trust you will find this series on stewardship both informative and challenging.
