Being a Christian also requires us to be good stewards. We are supposed to be good stewards of our time, talent, money, and the gospel. Would you say your stewarship may be better in one area than the other, or are you doing an excellent job in all areas?

Excellent topic!

I wish! I need to try harder, in fact my lack of stewardship was brought to my attention yesterday, my reaction proved I was growing in Holiness though, so there was some victory. God is definitely preparing me for something and I thank Him for paying particular attention to me.

Great thread antredd...thanks for asking! Well, I definately feel there is much room for improvement in all areas......time?...I spend a whole lot of time trying to get to know the Lord's heart better...trying to put it into "practical" terms..which has been very rewarding, and I get a little bit better at it every day...talent?..I've been very blessed with talent...I am an artist, in mediums like: oils; watercolor; pen & ink; charcoal; color pencils...God gave me a voice to sing words of love to him, and He has placed me in a position of leading people into His presence by way of singing Alto on our worship team at church...I am honored to serve Him in this way...again, very, very rewarding...money?......wellll...Let's just say God has provided for me everything I need! I do not lack for anything..as a matter of fact, it is a miracle that I live as well as I do for the money I do not have!...again, very, very rewarding to see God's perfect grace at work in my life...the Gospel?...now here is where my joy comes from...God's Word has led me through some pretty bad times...and I really should be dead right now, or locked-up or hospitalized or something!!...but here again..God's healing power in my life...His faithful love for me has seen me through it all...and here I stand! Healthy...happy...content...grateful...humble..hop eful and full of the perfecting love of God!...getting better all the time!!...Love

I love growth! Isn't it amazing?

I've felt it pressed on me that I am also being prepared for something...

I love this journey.

From the President to the paper boy... one thing we have all been given the same amount to manage in our lives.... time. So I guess we have 3 choices... waste it, spend it, or invest it.

Stewardship......if we are trusting and seeking Him, He will give us the wisdom, strength, ability to be obedient stewards in all that He provides for our lives.....
It's a desire planted in the heart by Him to do His will in all that one knows to do and honoring Him in our time, talent, money.
I just can not believe how one will be slacking in one area and not in another area of one's life.
The three go hand in hand with one another....
