And we each have different gifts, according to the grace that has been given to us: whether prophecy, in agreement with the reasonableness of faith; or ministry, in ministering; or he who teaches, in doctrine; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, in simplicity; he who governs, in solicitude; he who shows mercy, in cheerfulness.
— Romans 12:6-8
Stewardship is not a program. It is a way of life. It is rooted in an awareness that we have been abundantly blessed by God. Our lives, our families, and all our possessions ultimately come to us from God. This awareness leads us to be grateful. Our response to God’s generosity is to be generous ourselves and to commit to give generously of our time, talents and treasure for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
