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.

Perfect Church Poem

This timeless poem reminds Christians that there are no perfect churches and encourages them to be faithful.

There are no perfect churches. If you ever find one, don’t join it because you will ruin it!

The truth is that we are all sinners saved by grace. Each one of us has a lot of growing to do to become like the Saviour. Churches are like spiritual hospitals, not religious museums. They are (more…)

Sin Erodes Potential – 30 Days to Victory Devotional

Day 19

Sin not only costs you today but also steals from your future.

Psalm 31:10  “For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: My strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.”

One of the least recognized consequences of sin is the loss of future potential.  Every sin has a cost.  Some sins cost a lifetime.  The results of these sins change the trajectory of a life reducing options in the future.  

 

Older people grasp this truth better than young people.  It is hard for youths to understand the infinite potential of a life lived for God.  They know they have potential but cannot perceive the heights available to them through obedience to God.  Also, they don’t appreciate the devastating effects sin has on their future.  

Adults have a different perspective.  They (more…)

Sin Makes You Stupid – 30 Days to Victory Over Temptation

Day 10

Sin changes the way you see the world.  The more you sin, the more foolish you become.  Reject temptation and be wise.

 

Psalm 53:1  “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: There is none that doeth good.”

I knew a preacher that used to say, “Sin makes you stupid.”  The longer I live, the more I agree with him.

Sin is a trojan horse that promises pleasure but has hidden consequences.  It begins to change the way you think and feel.  

Like a computer virus, sin begins to rewrite your operating system.  It changes your priorities, motivations, hopes, and fears.  In fact, you become a different person as you go deeper into sin.

We all know people that used to be honorable who sin has corrupted.  The world is full of examples.  Women that used to be good mothers, who now (more…)
