5 Areas of Stewardship – Simplify Your Life & Pay Attention To What Matters Most

Romans 14:12
“So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”

It is my prayer that you have decided that you want to live a life of Biblical Stewardship. If that’s you – Congratulations! You are on your way to a blessed life and eternal rewards.

The desire to be a good steward is only the beginning. Now you must activate stewardship principles in your life. Life is endlessly complex, and everyone’s circumstances are different. It can be overwhelming to know where to start. Perhaps you try to be a good steward, but struggle to follow through. With God’s help, you can do it.

This article will simplify your approach to stewardship by categorizing your life into 5 general areas. You can stay on track and continue pleasing the Lord if you keep these areas in focus.

1. Time

Time is life. Literally.
Time is more than numbers on a clock. Time is the measurement of life. It is an accounting of your time on earth.

Although our souls are eternal, God made earthly life with an expiration date. We have a beginning and an end here on Earth. Time is not your enemy any more than the speedometer in your car is your enemy. They both function as a measuring device.

Time must be stewarded, or it will be wasted. How many days have we “wasted time?” How often do you get distracted only to find that you “wasted too much time” on a task or event?

What is a Steward? and how to be a good one

The Bible Doctrine of stewardship is an important concept for each Christian to learn.  It is a completely different mindset than how the world-system operates.  Are you a good steward? Find out in this article.

The world operates by the philosophy of ownership.  “It’s mine so I’ll do what I want” is the prevailing attitude.  Stewardship is the opposite.  The philosophy of stewardship says, “I’ve been entrusted with what belongs to someone else and I must give an account of how I handle it.”

You like the idea of stewardship even if you aren’t aware of it.  For example, If you let someone borrow your car, do you want them to drive it like they stole it (ownership)? Or would you rather them drive it like your grandma?  (stewardship)

One who lives by the principles of stewardship is a called a steward.  Let’s learn what a Biblical steward is and how to be a good one.

The word “steward” is an old word and the concept has been around since the Garden of Eden.

Free Downloadable Bible Reading Chart

Use this simple downloadable chart to track your Bible reading.

Daily Bible reading is an essential activity for every Christian. Your progress should be tracked and recorded. There are many ways to accomplish this, but for most people, a simple chart is enough.

This resource is a chart instead of a schedule. A Bible reading schedule will tell you what chapters to read on specific days. I have used many of them over the years.

In contrast, this Bible Reading Chart simply gives you the chapters of the Bible with no schedule or reading recommendations. You can read on your own schedule and mark off the chapters you have read.

It is designed for 8.5″ x 11″ paper. It can be folded in half to fit inside your Bible.
