What does stewardship mean to you?

The word, stewardship, simply means to manage someone else’s property. For the Christian, as Scripture proclaims everything belongs to God, we manage the property of our Lord. Since everything belongs to Christ, we need to have the attitude and view that our things are His things, our stuff is His stuff, that all we could have now, all we have lost, all we will have, is His, including our very bodies and spiritual gifts. We are mere lessees of the property, money, relationships, talents, time, and even our lives. That means all that we are and all that we have is not ours to begin with. They belong to God. Therefore, the duty of the Christian is to learn how to become responsible stewards of our Lord’s resources entrusted into our care. It means to manage everything to the best of our abilities for His glory.

First Corinthians 4:1-2 says, “Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” Next week everyone will have the opportunity to come, worship Christ, and return your Intention of Giving form. I hope that you have been prayerfully considering what it means to be a steward of God’s possessions. Thank you for your service to First Methodist Church of Yazoo City and to God.

The Christmas Shoe Boxes are also distributed here in the United States to waiting children in areas where they may not have heard of Christ or are living in hardship areas. Please remember to place you check in your completed box or use your credit card acquiring a bar code that may be printed out and placed on the outside of your shoe box. That tracking number lets you know what country your shoe box was given out to the children. Last year’s shoe boxes were delivered to 153 countries.
