We all possess the extraordinary opportunity to experience the blessings of good stewardship. How many resources has God given us to manage? Most of us have salvation, life, health, sight, hearing, intellect, food, water, talent, job, vehicle, home, friends, family, freedom, etc., and–that’s the short list! God has given us much and–His Word says: “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” (Luke‬ ‭12:48‬b) http://bible.com/1/luk.12.48.kjv If God is our master, we answer to Him for the way we have used all He has given us! How does our answer look?

God’s immense blessings place us in an extraordinary position to be a blessing to others. God didn’t give us these things so we could hoard them and keep them to ourselves. As stewards of God’s resources, He graces us with the opportunity to experience His blessing of giving. This isn’t just about money because money isn’t the hallmark of God’s abundance. God doesn’t need “our” money to bless others–He needs our heart. When our heart is His, we learn the extraordinary power of giving. We realize how much we are blessed and thus, we recognize we are in an amazing position to be a blessing. This perspective changes the degree to which we share our time, intellect, energy, resources, heart, family, talents, etc.

When we learn to share without stinginess or expectation of anything in return, then–we begin to experience the miracles of God’s provision. The Bible says: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8) We are incapable of out-giving God. Everyday He gives us the opportunity to be a part of His magnificent circle of giving!
