17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (1 Timothy 6:17 – 19)
Theme: If not You, then Who?

This week reminds me that service doesn’t always just refer to how we can help, but can also be expressed in the way we live, treat each other, and how we serve God.
I am also reminded why being a good steward comes naturally for me and many others. We keep in mind that what we have belongs to God anyway, so we should be generous and bless those in need when we can. It doesn’t always have to be financial. It can be with our time, caring attitude, and love.

I have learned from this week that if I fuss,complain and continue to stress over helping my daughter then I am not being a good steward.
I should understand that she has no one else and God has placed me here to give them an opportunity to start afresh with new life.
Still must keep reminding myself “then Who”

For me, the main distinctions between a steward and an owner proved to be very instructive.
The world’s view of wealth being measured in terms of socioeconomic power versus stewards recognizing and remembering God as the source of all our we have, was
a timely reminder.
