Developing a Steward’s Mindset

DAY 1 OF 3


Consequences happen whenever we seek to act as an owner over what God has entrusted us with to steward. Again, God does not share ownership. As Romans 11:36 states, “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” It’s all His.

In fact, Psalm 50:10–15 says,  “For every beast of the forest is Mine, the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird of the mountains, and everything that moves in the field is Mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is Mine, and all it contains. Shall I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of male goats? Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving and pay your vows to the Most High; call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”

Honor. We are to give God honor. That’s what living as a faithful kingdom steward does—it honors God. We cannot give God anything that He doesn’t already own. Which is why our thanksgiving and our vows (the things we pledge to do on behalf of His glory and advancing His kingdom) mean so much to Him. How we steward what has been given to us makes all the difference in the world. When we do that well, He says we can call upon Him, and He will rescue us.
