To Whom Much is Given: Much is Required

Dear Beloved,

Once again, I’m back with another word of encouragement for all of us. Today, I want to examine stewardship in the realm of what God has entrusted us with.  Sit back and reflect on this for just a moment.  What has God entrusted you with?  The bottom line is this: we are and will be held responsible for what we do with our talents, wealth, knowledge, time, and many other (spiritual) gift(s) that God has so richly blessed us with.

Think about the resources (finances and time), talents, and spiritual gifts that God has gifted you with.  I don’t want us to think that these blessings were given to us to remain dormant.  In fact, it’s the opposite.  God has tucked these treasures away to be developed, and ultimately used for His glory.  Let’s start to be better stewards over that which God has so freely extended.  From this day forward, beloved ask God for wisdom each day in regards to honoring Him by using those resources, talents, and spiritual gifts.  We must fully delight ourselves in expending them according to His will so that he may be glorified.

Don’t wait until tomorrow. Strive to be a better steward over your treasures.  Consider the following scriptures (of many) to catapult ourselves to another level:

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace (1 Peter 4:10, ESV)

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members,and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness (Romans 12:3-8, ESV)

With all that being said friends, let’s practice good stewardship with all of the many blessings that God has so graciously bestowed upon us. Until we meet again, I love you to life!

Xoxo,
