Your whole life is made up of
Abilities, Time and Possessions,
Gifts from God.
Your Abilities include natural talents
and skills which you have learned.
Your Time is divided between
work and rest
Your Possessions divide between
Property you hold and money you earn.
How you manage your whole life,
responsibly or carelessly,
generously or selfishly,
imaginatively or fearfully,
is your Stewardship
All gifts belong to God and you are the
responsible caretaker for a little while.
To be a good steward
is to be able to offer each day,
as an act of worship.
Abilities well used.
Time well spent,
Possessions well distributed.
