"A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will remove from your body the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh" Ezekiel 36:26
Stewardship is a way of life. It is an expression of discipleship based upon conversion of heart. When the Holy Spirit breaks into our lives our hearts become prayerful, our ministry joyful, and our generosity extravagant.
When we recognize that God is the origin of all life, the giver of everything that we have and are, the source of our freedom and giftedness, the healthy person responds by thanking God through prayer, by serving God and God's people through ministry, by sharing our financial resources with those in need.
Over the years many people in talking of stewardship have used the categories of time, talent, and treasure. These terms are sometime misused and misunderstood. In our stewardship journey, we will be using the more terms: Prayer, Service, and Sharing.
