Principles of Christian Stewardship

This month, I preached a short series on Christian Stewardship in preparation for an Estate Planning Workshop hosted by the California Baptist Foundation. I introduced four basic principles of Christian stewardship that will change the way you think about life and money. These include:

  • Ownership – Everything belongs to God. We are merely stewards of his grace, and will one day give an account for how we used and invested what he loaned us.
  • Opportunity – Giving is one of life’s greatest opportunities to show love to God and to serve others. It also becomes a great opportunity to imitate the gospel and to display integrity to a watching world.
  • Obedience – God has much to say in his Word about specific areas of stewardship. These helpful, practical, instructions reveal God’s will for our time, talents, and treasure.
  • Overflow – Far from a mere duty, God wants stewardship to flow from a heart of joy.
