Guardianship…upkeep…safekeeping…managing…cherishing…protecting…preserving. We are asked to be good stewards in our lives. We come into the world with nothing and when we leave we can take nothing with us. All that we receive is from God. God owns everything and we receive so that we can be cared for and share with others. The sinful nature would have us go after gaining more to keep and store up this turns us away from faith. The world has been filled with more than enough resources to feed and clothe everyone, yet the human race has not distributed things properly so there is poverty everywhere. Do what you can wherever you are to help those who need it most. May God’s joy and peace be with you.
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each one should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
