What is stewardship? It is simply a management of something. The Bible tells us be good stewards of our time, talents, and finances. Since God gave us the time, talents, and finances we should honor him by managing them well.
I would like to thank and honor those in our church who give tithes on a consistent bases. They are faithful stewards of the money God has given them. In obedience they give 10% (a tithe) back to God, because it’s his. In return, God promises these tithers (including me) several wonderful things that can be found in Mal. 3:10-12.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe, says the Lord Almighty. Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land, says the Lord Almighty.”
What awesome and gracious promises from our heavenly Father, to those who honor him with their finances. In church, we prayer over our tithes and come into agreement with God’s word. What about you? Are you a good steward of the money God has given you?
