When the Bible talks about stewardship, it's basically saying that God has given us all these things - like our time, talents, and possessions - and it's our job to take care of them. We should use them responsibly, ethically, and in a way that honors God and helps others. In other words, we're like caretakers for all the things God has given us, and we're responsible for how we use them.
Stewardship is an essential aspect of our Christian walk, as it reflects our responsibility to wisely manage the resources, talents, and opportunities that God has entrusted to us. In Matthew 25:23, Jesus commends the faithful servant for wisely investing his master's resources. In today's message, we will explore the concept of stewardship and how we can become good and faithful servants in our daily lives.

Emotional stewardship is an essential part of our Christian walk, as it impacts our relationship with God and others.

Let us strive to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to use our intellect for His glory and the edification of others.
Our vocation plays a significant role in our lives, and as Christians, we are called to be good stewards of our work, honoring God and serving others through our professional endeavors.
