Being, Knowing, and Doing—Part 24 (Stewardship Continued)

Being, Knowing, and Doing—Part 24 (Stewardship Continued)

How do we live with excellence in the temporal realm yet with hope in the eternal? Ken Boa reminds us that we do this in part by recognizing that there is a difference between the things that we hope for and the things that we hope in. Further, the Scriptures teach us to live with both faith and wisdom. Wisdom tells us about how we ought to live and order our lives; it relates to this temporal arena in which we find ourselves. Our faith in Jesus gives us a hope in what is not yet seen. Our faith in that which is eternal brings ultimate significance to the temporal.

This teaching is part 24 of a subseries on stewardship in the larger series, “Being, Knowing & Doing: How Godly Principles Strategically Affect Men’s Everyday Lives.”
