Great post. I think the concept of stewardship is one that should be taught to anyone who has ever handled money. It is the one that most changed my financial life. The great part about stewardship is that I no longer have to worry about money. The freedom that comes with that is enormous. I no longer worry about losing a job, having a car die, or even retirement. I just manage the money that God sends my way the best that I can, and he handles everything else. I wonder what ever made me think I could handle "owning" money. Being a steward is much more fun, relaxing, and rewarding.

The only thing I can add is that you cannot serve both God and money. Always have to keep that in mind.

There are so many people in today's world who live for and worship "money" in all its forms. Even in some Christian communities and churches money is highly worshipped over God (especially if it is not used by the church in the right way to bring the gospel of the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world at large.

In being good stewards of what God has entrusted us with, we should pray sincerely that what we give in tithes and offerings goes to the proper work of furthering the cause of God's Kingdom even in this world, bringing more people back into His fold not to perish, but have eternal life. Loving and serving God and others in this world as Jesus also loved us and gave Himself for us that we might live, is what life is all about. Yet, so many people still believe that "money" is what it's all about and continue to live for it throughout the ages and building up their "retirement" (laying up treasures on earth for themselves). Now, it's okay to plan ahead, but God does not want us to leave Him out of the equation like so many in this world have repeatedly done and lived to suffer the consequences for their actions.

I have too often said that when a person lives for money, he or she will never in this lifetime have enough of it. We must learn to place our faith and trust in the Lord that God will supply ALL our needs according to His riches in heaven, and NOT place our trust in man or governments to supply all our needs according to the riches of the "taxpayer." I rest easier at night knowing that God is still in control of this world regardless of what government rules.

Always bear in mind that it takes more faith to be an atheists than it does to be a Christian, and when we choose to serve Mammon over God, we too often get caught up in the world's way leaving God and turning our backs upon Him. We will always reap what we sow, later than we sow, and more than we sow, and what we reap always depends on the seed we sow in the beginning. Just a little something for us to remember as we go through this journey called life.

Let it go. Lay all your cares, burdens, worries, problems, stresses, and strife, anger, bitterness, envy, immorality, and anything else that keeps one from being a good steward and servant for the Lord at the foot of the Cross and leave it there for Jesus to take care of, never looking back, and never picking any of it back up again. Trust and faith in Jesus to handle the problems of this world in our obedience to Him is all it takes as we live the Christian life through His love, goodness, and shed blood knowing that we have a place of reward in His eternal kingdom.
