“…do we ever think of our neighbor, our children, or our spouses….as being the property of another…?”

We MUST be good STEWARDS of those GIFTS given to us by God, Our Savior....

We MUST be good STEWARDS of those GIFTS given to us by God, Our Savior….

What is being a good STEWARD all about?  Let’s see what the Bible says:  Ephesians 4:28 – Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.  1 Timothy 5:8 – But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.  Deuteronomy 14:22-29 – Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.  We most often think of being a good STEWARD in terms of giving to the Church. Or, tithing as many would say. But the Bible addresses it more commonly as being a keeper of another’s property. We’re all familiar with the various bible verses dealing with tithing, with taking care of the Master’s property, etc. But, do we ever think of our neighbor, our children, or our spouses….as being the property of another? The “other” in this case is, of course…. God. Our children, our spouses, our family, our neighbor’s….all…. are on loan, to us, from Our Lord God. It is our duty to take care of them…to provide, and to protect them. Have we, also, thought of our own talents… as being on loan from God? We are to utilize those talents given to us, each, as Gifts from God. They’re loaners…. And we must return them in good order…as good as, or better than…when we took procession. We are responsible for each and every one of these ….our family, friends, the homeless, and the needy; as well as ourselves. Take CARE…be a good STEWARD. …Blessings…cjlb…8/20/14.
