Stewardship, What does the Bible say about Giving? When we become burdened with a mindset of materialism (i.e. non-stewardship focused giving) we become slaves to money instead of our money being our servant for the promotion of God’s Kingdom. King Solomon who was one of the richest and wisest men of all time, expressed his feeling of emptiness of materialism when he said, “vanity of vanities, it is all a bubble that bursts.”

Adoration “And you,” he said to them, “who do you say that I am?” (Mt 16:15) At first the answer to this question seems quite obvious, yet it merits our consideration and response. Is Jesus my first thought in the morning when I awaken, my constant companion at work or play throughout the day, my first recourse in trails and troubles? Do my thoughts turn often to him in praise and gratitude, in reverence and honor?
