Welcome to part 3 of our series ‘#faithful.’

Throughout this series we will be exploring what it means to be faithful with the resources God has given us.

We began with the foundational understanding found in Psalm 24:1, “The earth is the LORD’S and everything in it.”.

This week, time and energy. Two of the things that we never seem to have enough of. So what are you doing with yours?
Taking Stock (For Whom Are You Toiling?)
Last week we spoke about money & possessions. And for most of us,we keep some stock of what we spend our money on.

However, we much less often keep an account of what occupies our time and consumes our energy.

Who receives the results of our toil? Who should?
In response to the sacrificial love that God has shown us, we are called to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice to God.

What does it mean to offer all of our time & energy as a living sacrifice to God? Should we all be pastors or missionaries or spend 24/7 at church?

Let’s take a look at 3 key principles for being #faithful with our time & energy.
Faithful stewards spend their time & energy in ways that prioritise the Kingdom of God above all else.

'Failing to plan is planning to fail' - Alan Lakein

What is your priority?
Whatever You Do, Do It Unto The Lord
Faithful stewards work as enthusiastically in their day to day lives as they would if they were working for the Lord.

Who is your boss?
Faithful stewards embrace rest and play as not only a reward, but an act of faithfully stewarding their time & energy.

When was the last time you took a moment to rest or play?
So remember;

Prioritise the Kingdom of God
Do everything as unto the Lord
Embrace rest and play as an act of faithful stewardship
