All we possess is a gift from God. Everything we have is freely given for our own good. This is basic to our faith and is often repeated throughout Scripture. Just as basic and repeated is another truth: we should return a portion of those gifts (our time, talent and treasure) to God in gratitude for the abundant generosity we have received.

Generous Reflection

THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR STEWARDSHIP IS GOD’S LOVE DEMONSTRATED BY THE GIVING OF HIS SON.
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

As we become more Christ-like, we become more interested in others and less likely to serve only ourselves. This transformation is possible because God renews our minds and changes our hearts. Because God enables us to see things through his eyes, we begin to comprehend what his will is, and we live our lives trying to please him. With our focus on ourselves diminished, we look for opportunities to help the people God places around us. Whenever we help those in need in Christ’s name, we are in reality doing our acts of service unto Jesus himself (Matthew 25:40).
