Good stewardship is showing God you appreciate and thank Him for what He has placed in your hands!
God is always willing and wanting to bless His People, however God is also looking for good stewardship of that in which He entrust into our hands.
If we cannot be a good steward over what He has already given us, then how can we expect Him to release more unto us?
To whom more is given, more is required….. (Matthew 13:12).
Too many people are jealous of others, of what they have, of what they have built — ministries etc., but too often they fail to realize and have no ideas, how hard one has had to work to keep up that which God has placed in their hands.
Stewardship is one of the most important concepts we can define.
According to Merriam Webster, stewardship is “the conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.”
God is looking for good stewards today. Practice that and then you will have no time or reason to be envious of another.
“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace,” James 3:13-18.
