In Part One, we considered the concept that stewardship is about managing something that belongs to someone else. We breifly looked at the concept of borrowing a library book. Now let us consider more specifics about how this relates to stewardship.
Just as the library book belongs to someone else (the cummunity at large), stewardship recognizes that:
To whom does all this belong? Quite simply; the creator of all things – God.
Recognizing the simple truth that everything belongs to God can have a profound impact upon the way one acts and interacts in the world. It can be a life altering, life enhancing, and life refreshing way to view everthing.
In Part Three we will take a look at why God trusts us to care for what God created.
