Stewardship as a Faith Practice

 

Years ago, Dorothy Bass was the editor of the earth shaking book "Practicing Our Faith". The book directs the readers attention to the “practices” not beliefs that shape and form believers into the image of Christ. Hospitality, Economics, and Forgiveness are three of the practices. Stewardship is also one of the practices that shape our faith.

 

Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” Stewardship begins with a recognition that what is –comes from God. It is God’s. Thus we don’t give to the budget, or even give to God, we GIVE BACK to God what he has entrusted to us.

Below are some links to other resources for your reading, listening, or viewing pleasure. They range from how to speak with children about generosity to growing in our stewardship. To be grateful is to have our eyes open to the work of God all around us.
