Stewardship is a way of life

Stewardship as a way of life requires us to put Jesus Christ first in our lives and to live every aspect for the glory of Him. We are stewards, not out of obligation but out of gratitude and joy for all that God has done for us. Stewardship in action is caring for and sharing the gifts God has given us … our Time, Talent and Treasure. It is only in giving of our entire self that we come to realize the graciousness and mercy of the Lord.


Time is more than the hours in the day and offering our gifts to the church. It is putting God first in our lives and sharing our faith with others. Stewardship helps us evaluate how we use our time.

In Action

Imagine when Mary and Jesus were guests at the wedding in Cana. The place was full of music and laughter. Like most weddings, along with the excitement, there was some concern because the wine was running low.

In this story, Mary shows us the way of true stewardship. She had a close, personal relationship with Jesus. She knew his heart and what mattered to him. She paid attention to the needs of the people around her, and through prayer, she asked Jesus to fulfill those needs.

But the “distinctive ingredient” was Mary’s willingness to be an instrument of the Lord’s providence and care. She helped others enter more fully and joyfully into the feast. She says to us, just as she said to the servers at the wedding, “Do whatever Jesus tells you.”
