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).
