Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Stewardship is ... being GENEROUS with...
ALL that we do, with ALL that we have, ALL the time.
God calls us to share in God's mission of caring for the world, using all the gifts God has given us. We are stewards, caretakers of God's gifts. Everything we have was a gift from God, and God asks us to use it all for God's purposes. Generosity flows naturally out of our gratitude for the gift of love, family, and life itself.
Stewardship isn't ...
+ Paying the light bills or maintaining a building.
+ Paying a decent staff.
+ Meeting the budget.
+ Keeping the church alive.
+ Paying our fair share of the dues.
+ Passing on a legacy to our children.
Stewardship is ...
+ Sharing in God's mission with a glad, generous and grateful heart.
+ Transforming lives in our community.
+ Prayerfully responding to God's call.
+ A deeply spiritual matter.
+ Something that blesses the giver more than the receiver.
+ A call to be a new creation in Christ
+ A call to be transformed and discover the abundance of God's gifts
Stewardship, our Generosity is... Everything I do after I say, "I believe."
Join the Generosity Movement!
See ya Sunday!
Blessings & Peace,
All Saints Messenger >
