Although stewardship is a daily matter, we devote some time each year for a more focused emphasis on stewardship education. We are called to give prayerful and careful consideration to the ways we will support the mission and ministry with our time, talent, and resources.
Christian stewardship is the faithful management of all that God gives to us—a spiritual discipline—and not the same as secular fund-raising. It is more about faith-raising. Stewardship is not “paying the bills.” It is paying attention to how we use our gifts. As people of faith, it is something that deserves “praying attention”—especially when we consider how much Jesus talked and taught about it.
