Practicing Biblical Stewardship

Practicing Biblical Stewardship

“‘Well done, good and faithful servant… Come and share your master’s happiness!” (Matt 25:21 NIV) What’s in the middle of that verse? You know, the ellipsis (…)? Answering this question sums up the content of this post about practicing Biblical stewardship. It isn’t just about the cliché time, talents and treasure.

“You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.”

God blesses us with authority in His future Kingdom when we are responsible stewards in this life.

This blog has been relatively unclear and all over the map; somewhat like the flight path of a

Defining Leadership Activity

Defining Leadership Activity

So… what do YOU do? It’s a fair question most people end up asking each other in social settings. When we are in church settings however, that question can often times become more difficult to answer. How do we measure or quantify what we do?

Living Under Threat

Living Under Threat

Living under threat is foreign to me. I ministered to a young Airman yesterday who barely started their elementary school years when this Global War on Terror began in September 2001.
