Being A Steward


It Is Written Matthew 25:14-30, in the parable of the talents, a description of one of the things a Steward does.
A Steward is one who manages what belongs to another.  Whether we realize it or not, we too are stewards.  Since everything belongs to God, we are only using what He gave us to take care of.
Most, if not all of us, complain about things God has given us. This includes everything.  Not enough money, house is too small, the car is old, and so it goes.
If you gave your child a bicycle for instance, and he or she did not take care of it, how would you feel?  What if they complained about it all the time, and destroyed it through carelessness and neglect?  Would you give them a better one?
God distributes as He chooses, because He knows how each of us fits into His master plan.  Some people live in poverty to the point of starvation. Some people have more than they know what to do with.  God is anxious to see what we do with what he has given us to take care of.
We may drive an old car in cold weather, and that is a blessing.  Some people have to walk.  He gives us opportunities to use what he gives us to take care of, in a way that makes us and Him happy.  Appreciate what God gives you, use it wisely, be thankful, and your reward will be more and greater, as you earn His trust.  May God bless you and your family.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
