Stewardship of Talents

Stewardship of Talents

Jesus used a steward as an example in several of his parables, because all of us in some way or another manage things that belong to God. The word “stewardship” often refers to the way that we use money, and it is a reminder that the stuff we have is not really our own, and so we ought to be generous in giving some of it back to God for his use.

Christian churches sometimes talk about the idea of “stewardship,” but especially for new people, it is often an unfamiliar word. We don’t know what stewardship is, and we don’t know what a steward is.

But Jesus used a steward as an example in several of his parables, so it is helpful for us to see what he is talking about.

Whole Life Stewardship

Introduction

As we grow in our Christian lives, we come to a deeper and deeper realization that every good thing we receive, our Father gives us. We are in a life-long process as stewards of his possessions. Whole life stewardship is a life management style; in other words, it is not some person’s way of raising money, but God’s way of raising disciples. In three steps, we see that Christian stewardship is God’s resources, deployed through God’s people, to accomplish God’s mission.

Stewardship: Our Lives Are Not Our Own

The New Testament, although emphasizing grace, has hundreds of commands. These are not requirements for salvation, but rather describe the results of salvation—results of God's grace and his Spirit working within us. The new covenant makes comprehensive demands on us—not just one day a week, but an eternal lifetime. Not just 10 percent, but everything we own. Not just outward conduct, but our hearts and minds.
