Stewardship Moment - 9th Sunday after Pentecost



Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52

Stewardship Moment from Pastor William


Stewardship in the Gospel

Jesus says these five parables are about recognizing the value of the treasure of the kingdom of heaven. That is, that the love of God (old treasure) and compassion of Jesus (new treasure) are of more value than all worldly treasures.


Stewardship in our community

Our community is inundated with messages of the value in obtaining worldly treasure. Remember, the love of worldly treasure leads to all kinds of evil. But the treasure of the kingdom of heaven is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22). These treasures are of greater value for our community.


Stewardship in practice

Recognizing the value of the treasure of the kingdom of heaven leads us to divest ourselves of all other treasure. In so doing, we are freed to use kingdom treasure to benefit all others and creation. This week, change a habit that will benefit creation; make one less trip with your vehicle, turn up your thermostat one degree, choose to buy locally obtained instead of individually shipped items, and switch to reusable canvas bags instead of plastic.
