“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself
rather unto godliness.”
“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto
all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which
is to come.”
Stewardship is the covenant pathway to greatness in life Lk. 22:25-27; Mat. 20:25-27. No one becomes great and sustains it without a commitment to serve. The scriptures make us to understand that the reason many are ‘poor’ or remain small in life is because they do the talk but not the walk Pro. 14:23. Many in church are good in talking, but scarce in doing so they don’t reflect the blessing of the kingdom. When a believer commits to the life of service, nothing can stop his rise to the top. And the most rewarding of all services is spiritual stewardship, which is the pursuit after God’s interest and of the advancement of His kingdom Mat. 6:33. The scriptures show us that this is business, and every business has the ultimate of profit Lk. 2:49; 19:13-18. The bigger the personality or organization one does business with, the greater the prospect of profit. Think of doing business with God, the owner of the heaven and earth.
Channels of Spiritual Stewardship.
The scriptures instruct the believer to be out doing good to all men, particularly to co-brethren Gal. 6:10; 1Tim. 5:8. This means taking our eyes off our self, needs, issues, and committing ourselves to see how someone’s life can be better through whatever one can make happen. When we do this, the scriptures promise great profit. Some of which include:
We must understand that what we do for God and His kingdom is never a waste. We are in the reality of things making great deposits into our future with the guarantee of having it return in multiplied fold into our life Gal. 6:7-9; Eph. 6:8.
