Don’t Quit! Poem

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Healthy Stewardship Habits

So you want to be a good Christian steward?  Learning this simple truth will make it a lot easier!

How do we overcome a lifetime of doing things our way and start consistently living like Jesus?

The answer may surprise you.

Habits.

Everyone has them.  Most people don’t give much thought to them, yet they are the secret to stability.  Your habits are making your life better or worse every day.

If you can learn to leverage the power of habit, you will find the consistency necessary to be a faithful disciple of Christ.

The Problem With Christian Stewardship

Why do so many Christians fail to be good stewards? Christ taught the parable that explains it all.

The Problem With Christian Stewardship

Luke 12:43–47
“Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. ”

“Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. ”

“But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; ”

“The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. ”

“And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.”

Our Lord gave us a parable contrasting two servants in this passage of Scripture.

The first servant mentioned was faithful to His Master’s commands. As a result, he was blessed and rewarded. In contrast, the second servant in the lesson was unfaithful. He failed his Master in spirit and action. Therefore, he was punished.

Which servant do you want to be? I trust that you desire to be a faithful steward. Our Lord has given us so many blessings that we are eternally indebted to Him.

Every sincere believer yearns to please the Saviour. Yet, so many fail. Why?

This passage of Scripture reveals the problem of stewardship. The unfaithful servant failed for one simple reason.
