STEWARDSHIP CORNER :“Luke 12: 22-24 New International Version (NIV)
Luke 12:22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.24
Wise stewards are guided by Lordship, not “hoardship”. Richness toward God comes through seeing everything as a gift from His hand, seeking His direction before settling on decisions, and caring more about giving than getting. We all have the same ability to be good stewards. We only have to make a choice in our lives, so choose wisely!
