Stewardship Soundings Part 5

Stewardship Soundings – Perspective is Important


Perspective is a powerful tool. We all know the test of pessimism or optimism presented by the image to the left. But, did you know that perspective can change the way you look at the world, people, and creation?

Consider these two answers to the stated question and how they might change your perspective:

  • The glass is completely full; half with water, half with air.
  • The glass is refillable.

Both of the above statements are a perspective informed by understanding stewardship. That is, that God made everything (water and air) and God made it abundant (refillable.)


Our God is a God of abundance, but we often speak and act like we have a God of scarcity. Ponder conversations from your recent past, did you hear things like:

  • There’s only so much to go around, I have to get my share before it is gone.
  • You snooze, you lose.

The above is scarcity speak.


What might it look like to use abundancy speak? Might we hear:

  • I have enough, now let me give some to those without.
  • There’s plenty to go around, let’s share.


We can accomplish so much more when we live as children of an abundant God. That is stewardship.
