Stewardship: Living as God's Redeemed People
Title: God’s Stewards: Managers, Not Owners!
Text: 1 Chronicles 29:1–3, 6, 9–18; 2 Corinthians 8:1–7; 9:7–8; Luke 12:41–48
“Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more” (Luke 12:48).
I. God has trusted us with life and life’s resources
II. That’s a privilege, not and entitlement.
III. All this we’re privileged to manage for our needs (and even luxuries), for the truly needy, and for our Lord’s ministry and mission.
IV. So God’s people are generous.
