40 Days of Discipline: Day 27 – Stewardship

3 Comments

11 It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’”  12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. (Romans 14:11 – 12)

 

As we continue to consider the Discipline of Stewardship as it relates to Our Identity, an important principle to consider is accountability.  Since we are stewards of God’s resources, it is entirely logical and Biblical to expect that we should give an account.  How do we manage our priorities, time, health and wealth?  In tangible terms, let’s assume that you rigorously maintained a calendar, a diary, an address book, and financial statements (e.g., a bank statement).  If these were made public, what would they say about your stewardship of time, health, emotions, relationships and finances?

Please prayerfully reflect on the passages above.

 

Something to think about:

Wherever we are on the journey of stewardship we can improve.  What one thing could you do to improve?

  1. Emotion is the area is need to work on in this season of my life. I have allowed myself to be blind to who I am in Christ. Swapping my identity in Christ for what the world thinks. I have invested hours in unhealthy thoughts of worth that are not in alignment with who I am in Christ. Lord help me to reshape my emotions today. Amen

  2. I am only half way there but believe I could make it if I try by Gods grace 🙄

  3. What one thing? (re my stewardship of time, health, emotions, relationships and finances). That’s tough! I can think of many! Time? Less wasting. Health? More exercise. Emotions? Ok, I think. Relationships? Invest more time more broadly. Finances? More disciplined giving. It’s a journey, what can I say. But for me, the key is to be moving in the right direction.
