Let's Talk: What Does The Bible Say?

Stewardship Is Giving God What Is His

God is the source of all blessings—tangible and spiritual. All that we have and all that we are we owe to Him. Christians are trustees of the Gospel, which they are commanded to share. They are also responsible to be good stewards of all their possessions. They are under obligation to serve God with their time, talents, and material possessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for the glory of God and for helping others. According to the Bible, Christians should contribute of their means cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liberally to advance Jesus’ mission on Earth.

Here are some things the Bible says about stewardship:
