Stewarding Talent

Jun 16, 2024    Josh Reeves

A steward is a person who has been entrusted with another’s resources and who seeks to manage those resources according to the owner’s vision and values. The gospel calls us to recognize that everything we have is a gift from God — and that those gifts are to be used for his glory and to further his kingdom. Jesus calls us to stewardship when he says, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but store up for yourself treasures in heaven…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

Stewardship is an essential part of every Christian’s discipleship to Jesus. Yet, it is often overlooked or under-taught. Learning to steward our time, talent, and treasure for the glory of God and the good of others frees us from the grips of materialism and consumerism. More than that, it honors Jesus as Lord over all in our lives and blesses others. In this short sermon series, we will allow God’s word to shape us into gospel stewards.
