2018 11 04: The Stewardship of Life

Stewardship isn’t just a season about raising money and getting volunteers.  Not at all.  It’s about learning to see our whole lives as a gift from God, and offering it back as a gift.  It’s not about how many zeroes are in your bank account.  It’s not about how talented you think you are or how well you can sing.  It’s about taking whatever gifts God has blessed you with and offering them back with a cheerful heart and a generous spirit.  It’s not just about what we give to God here in church; it’s about what we give to God in our whole lives, at home, at work, in our neighborhoods, and everywhere else.
