Christ calls us to “do business”, and doing business is summed up in the lifestyle of a Generous steward.  Generous stewards are called to faithfully manage all of their time, talent, and treasure as resources for God’s purposes.

When our relationship with Jesus changes, so does our relationship with money. The pull of money and greed may be strong, but the pull of Christ is stronger.

Stewardship is a call to trust in God. Yet we often give out of our bare excess because we really don’t trust God to provide for tomorrow’s needs. As we fight to trust in God and His provision, we are to look to Jesus and give generously.

Money deceives us into thinking that if we have it, it will make us happy, while all other purposes of life fall away. But the more clearly we see Jesus, the less likely we are to see money as life.
