“Give an Account of Thy Stewardship”
St. Luke 16:1&2
Today, we want to have a stewardship moment. It is always good to start off the year by taking a closer look at our stewardship.
We all should want to be good stewards of what He has entrusted into our care.
What is a good steward?
Steward – one who manages or looks after another’s property
It is a person’s responsibility to take care of what he or she has been entrusted with.
The Lord has made us all stewards, and we must take good care of what He has entrusted into our hands.
Here are three areas that we must pay close attention to:
- Our bodies. We, as good stewards, must take care of our bodies. This requires us paying attention to what we do with it, and what we put in it. Many times we pay more attention to what we put in our cars, than what we put in our bodies. Remember, it is not His job to take care of our bodies, but it is our job as stewards.
So many people’s bodies are breaking down on them, because they are not being a good steward over their bodies. You need to say, “I will give more attention to my health this year.” III John 2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Remember that we must also do the right things with our body. The Apostle Paul addresses this in I Corinthians 6:13-19. Fornication, which is sex before marriage, as youth and adults, is destructive to the body. Please read these verses. Different diseases and soul ties happen as a result of this.
One in every four Americans has a sexually transmitted disease. Fifty percent of youth will end up with a sexually transmitted disease.
This is a new year, which represents another chance. Let’s start off this year being a good steward of what the Lord has entrusted into our hands.
I will continue with Part 2 tomorrow.
