Stewardship: When you step back and consider what difference your life will make to your family, your neighbors and your community, you’ll ask questions like these: “How do I best use the resources and opportunities that have been entrusted to my care?” “How should I manage my time, abilities, education, heritage and financial resources?” “How do I direct these resources…and toward what goal?” At the Free Methodist Foundation, we are committed to helping you answer these questions and experiencing a life of Stewardship Well Done.
What is Stewardship Well Done? To us, it means effectively managing the gifts and resources entrusted to us by God. There’s a familiar passage in the Bible in which Jesus tells the story of a landowner who entrusts money to each of three servants. Later, he finds that two of the servants invested the money and watched it grow. The third servant buried the money, fearful that he would lose it. The two who put the resources to work were commended by their master. The third was sent away disgraced. Jesus tells this story to illustrate that, if we are good stewards with God’s gifts, we too will hear the words, “Well done!” So what has been entrusted to you that needs thoughtful management?
