Stewardship Mandate

seedling009Stewardship is the first recorded subject God talked to mankind about in Genesis.  Imagine the context of creation power, beauty and love God blesses Adam, “God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”” (Genesis 1:28, NLT)

That stewardship mandate has not changed.  We are still responsible to creatively multiply and use our gifts for the glory of God.  Stewardship is discipleship.

The salvation that Christ has given us freely gives us a fresh start in life.  Rather than wasting our lives or being wasted by sin, we are given a brand new life.  That new life has the potential to bear fruit that will remain forever.  Think of the gifts that God has given you and how you could use them for his glory!  The possibilities are unlimited.

What do you imagine you could achieve in life?  What would it feel like to achieve those dreams in life? When could you begin to make those dreams come true?

Progress with your life’s dreams is made thoughtfully, diligently and prayerfully.  Taking time to prioritize how you will use your time, treasures, talent and other resources God has given you is key to fruitfulness and multiplication.

“[God] will give you all you need from day to day if you live for Him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.” (Matthew 6:33, NLT)

Peace!
