Daily Encouragement: Day 328

Adapted from Handbook to Spiritual Growth


As followers of Christ, we must embrace a stewardship mindset: we own nothing, and we are not here on our own business. As stewards, we manage the possessions of Another; as ambassadors, we manage the affairs of Another. The King owns everything, and we are on His business to serve and represent Him in the world.

This mindset explodes the popular misconception that we give God His percentage and the rest is ours. According to Scripture, we are accountable to God for everything. Whether we have much or little, our key responsibility as His stewards remains the same: faithfulness (see 1 Corinthians 4:1–2). This faithfulness should be with whatever God gives us—opportunities, interests, skills, employment, family, talents, spiritual gifts, land, money, time, truth, and relationships.
